A man has been taken to hospital with "serious" injuries after a crash on the A55 near Abergele.

It took place on the A55 between St Asaph and St George on Saturday morning with the westbound carriageway shut from Junction 27 and diversions put in place.

Both lanes have since reopened.

North Wales Ambulance said it was called at 11:50 GMT and the man was taken to Glan Clwyd Hospital.

Bangor and Conwy football clubs delayed their kick-offs due to the delays.

The collision occurred between Junction 24A and Junction 24.

The air ambulance was also called to the scene, but the man was taken to hospital by road.

In a separate incident on the westbound carriageway of the A55 between Holywell and St Asaph, emergency services were called to a vehicle fire at 16.46 GMT.

One person was taken to hospital and treated for cuts and shock.
