Police and air ambulance services have rushed to a holiday park following a “serious incident”.

An air ambulance landed close to Parkdean's Ty Mawr Holiday Park in Towyn, North Wales, after the area was cordoned off.

Our sister title The Mirror report how the A548 was closed in both directions while North Wales Police say there is no threat to the wider public.

In a tweet, the force said: "Officers are attending a serious incident at a Holiday Park near Abergele. Investigations are ongoing. Apologies for any difficulty.

"There is no threat to the public but please stay away as we deal with the incident. Thanks for your patience."

A park spokesperson confirmed it is assisting police.

They said: "There has been an incident at the park and our team are assisting the police. It would be inappropriate to comment further."

A holidaymaker who is staying in a caravan near to the scene, said they were stuck in traffic as the emergency services first arrived.

The witness, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Mirror: "They have taped everywhere off now around the caravans and blocked the gaps with vans so you can't see through the gaps."
