A55 lane closed after chemical spill reopens

Congestion on the A55 after a chemical spill

A lane of the A55 which was closed for 38 hours after a chemical spill in Conwy county has reopened.

The expressway was shut at about 11:00 GMT on Tuesday after 27,000 litres (6,000 gallons) leaked from a tanker between Colwyn Bay and Llanddulas.

The incident caused severe delays as specialist teams were brought in to help with the clean up.

Traffic Wales said the westbound carriageway reopened at about 01:00 on Thursday.
