A MAIN road in Towyn has reopened after a vehicle crashed during a police chase. 

The car - a Volkswagen golf estate - was being pursued by police on Gors Road on Saturday morning when it crashed into a ditch after a bend, North Wales Police said.

The force has confirmed that the driver has been arrested on suspicion of "various driving offences".

The Welsh Ambulance Service has confirmed a woman was taken to hospital following the incident.

The road was closed for over four hours before reopening shortly before 2.30pm.

Police said the chase started on the A55 after officers from the Roads Policing Unit spotted the Volkswagen being driven dangerously, with it eventually ending after "some time" on Gors Road.

A North Wales Police spokesperson said: "At approximately 9.55am today a red Volkswagen golf estate was reported to police as driving dangerously on the A55.

""The driver has been arrested for various driving offences."
