A footpath is likely to remain closed for some time after the collapse of a stone wall near a historic hotel in Denbighshire.

Emergency services launched a search after the collapse near Ruthin Castle on Friday afternoon. No one was hurt.

A section of the wall of about 30ft (10m) collapsed near a scout hut.

Ruthin councillor Dave Smith said the path was not a major thoroughfare, but the wall is listed and part of the hotel grounds.

Denbighshire council said the footpath linking Castle Street to Cae Ddol - which is known locally as the Cunning Green - will remain shut for some time.

The hotel has been asked to comment.
