Emergency services are in attendance at a collision at the Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

The incident, which took place earlier this afternoon, involves a car which has “crashed through” the main entrance at the hospital.

North Wales Police and North Wales Fire and Rescue Service are in attendance.

A spokesperson for North Wales Police said: “We were called at 1.54pm to reports of a single vehicle RTC at Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

“Officers are currently in attendance and one person is being assessed for minor injuries.

“The front entrance to the hospital is currently cordoned off and the public are requested to avoid the immediate vicinity whilst emergency services deal with the incident.”

Adele Gittoes, Interim Executive Director of Operations at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board said: “No staff or patients were injured in this incident, and all services, remain open as normal.

“I’d like to thank all colleagues and the emergency services for the swift response to this incident this afternoon and also our Estates team for securing the area and ensuring our main entrance remains open securely for our patients and visitors.”
