A fallen tree has closed a road in both directions in Gwynedd.

The tree is blocking the B4409 at Bethesda which has been shut between the A5 High Street at Braichmelyn and B4366 at Glasinfryn.

The county council has been informed and will remove the tree later on Wednesday.

It comes amid warnings of gusts of up to 50mph over hilly regions and exposed western coastal areas with persistent rain in parts of Wales forecast.

But the Met Office said conditions should not be as severe as Tuesday.
