A feminine pedestrian has been hit and killed by a car outside the I’m a Celebrity castle.
The A547 was closed at Abergele, North Wales, for greater than 15 hours as officers investigated the tragedy at teatime yesterday.
It occurred on a darkish stretch of street with a 60mph restrict.
One native man mentioned: ‘Barriers have been put up on pavements further down the road because of the expected influx of sightseers although they get a better view of the lit-up Gwrych castle from Pensarn beach where it’s additionally safer.
‘Where this happened is a dark section of road and there have been some nasty accidents before.’
He added: ‘There were some I’m a Celebrity followers outside the castle on Saturday night time.
‘But whether the show had anything to do with what happened, I don’t know. There is a personal entrance into the castle grounds close by.’
On social media there have been claims that some followers had been climbing partitions to attempt to get snaps.
There is nothing to counsel that the girl who died had been attempting to get an image of the castle.
North Wales police mentioned: ‘We are interesting for witnesses following a collision on the A547 Abergele Road close to Llanddulas wherein a girl has sadly died.
‘We obtained a report at 5.06pm on Saturday of a collision involving a feminine pedestrian and a blue Volvo property car at a location often known as Middle Gate.
‘A woman from the local area was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Volvo was left shocked, but uninjured by the collision.’
Sgt Emlyn Hughes of the Roads Policing Unit mentioned: ‘I am appealing for anyone who may have witnessed this tragic incident, or who may have dashcam footage, to contact the Roads Policing Unit. The road remains closed and will be for some time as we conduct our investigations.’
The coroner has been knowledgeable.
