The incident started shortly before 10pm, @wxmmoz contacted our @wrexham Twitter account and said: ‘Police stopping traffic going down Bradley road next to bellevue park towards morrisons. No idea why. @wrexham’

Local sources have said that a man and woman are on the roof of a nearby church throwing bricks and slates initially at passers by. Police closed the road and are talking to the pair on the roof.
