THREE roads into a Vale of Clwyd village were blocked by flood waters during Storm Dennis.

Roads were shut across Denbighshire on Sunday due to heavy rainfall as flood alerts remain in place for the River Clwyd catchment area, and the Lower and Upper Dee Valley.

A Denbighshire County Council spokesperson said its teams from highways and Streetscene were "doing all we can do" to reopen the routes. It said the closures were caused by "predominantely surface water".

Residents in Llanynys, situated between Llandyrnog and Rhewl, were cut off on Sunday morning after the Pont Pefra, Old School Junction and A525 routes were flooded.

The Bod Ynys Junction was reopened on Sunday afternoon, however due to rising river levels in the River Clwyd, the Pont Pefra and Old School Junction routes remained shut overnight.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service was called to Pentre Llanrhaeadr after a motorist had become stranded in the flood water.

"An officer assisted a person in Pentre Llanrhaeadr at 4.43pm on Sunday after they had become trapped in a car," the fire service spokesperson said.

In Corwen, Green Lane remains closed, as well as the A5 at Tyn y Cefn.

Lower Denbigh Road and Glascoed Road in St Asaph, the B5429 from Llysfasi to Rhydymeudwy reopened on Sunday, while the A525 from Trefnant to Tremeirchion reopened on Monday morning.

A DCC spokesperson added: "Officers are continuing to monitor river levels and assist with the clean-up operations.

"The weather forecast is for showers which might turn wintry so crews are undertaking winter maintenance on affected routes this evening and overnight."
