Leaves are rural road hazard in Conwy, say residents

People in Conwy say leaves, hedge clippings and dirt are causing a hazard on rural roads in the county.

They say drains are getting blocked, and rotting leaves increase the chance of cars skidding.

There have even been reports of delivery firms failing to get through because of the state of the roads.

The council says it is doing its best to keep on top of the problem, and says it wants people to help by calling in to report any trouble spots.

BBC Radio Wales' Chris Dearden went to look at things for himself.
