The A55 has reopened after it was closed at Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire, by a police incident.

It was shut in both directions and congestion stretched back from junction 23a for Abergele to junction 28 for Rhuallt.

North Wales Police had said it was dealing with an "ongoing incident" and told motorists to stay in their cars.

The force reopened it at 17:00 BST and thanked people for their patience.
