POLICE are investigating an attempted break-in at a bank in Colwyn Bay.

A window was smashed during the raid attempt.

North Wales Police were called to reports of a break in at Lloyds Bank, on the corner of Conway Road and Llewellyn Road, at about 6.30am on Tuesday morning.

The side door to the bank had its window smashed and the area was sealed off for a number of hours on Tuesday morning.

The bank re-opened in the afternoon and police found no money had been taken from the branch during the attempted break in.

Cllr Stephen Williams, Colwyn Bay mayor, said: “The attempted break in at Lloyds is disappointing because it goes against all the efforts and time people have put into the regeneration of the town.

“But as a town we are at a turning point and Colwyn Bay is on the rise and we are lucky we don’t have very many incidents like this.”

“Most of the people that live in the town are really good people, this is just a small incident and we can’t let this hold us back."
