A roof has collapsed at a former Victorian hospital in Denbighshire, prompting police to label the site "dangerous" and advise people to stay away.

The derelict North Wales Hospital in Denbigh has been at the centre of a long-running dispute over its future.

On-duty police officers saw the roof collapse when they attended the scene responding to reports of trespassers.

It failed to sell at auction in May after its £2.25m price was not met.
