Update May 17: Multi-agency response to the factory fire on Denbigh Road, Mold

The multi-agency recovery phase is now underway following the factory fire on Denbigh Road, Mold.

Lyndsey Rawlinson from Natural Resources Wales said:

“Our extensive water sampling and monitoring work since the incident have shown the levels of pollution in the river Alyn to have fallen sharply and to be within safe levels. There is no longer any need to keep pets or livestock away from the water.
“Monitoring has also shown the effect on the river Alyn biodiversity to have been localised to the immediate stretch of river neighbouring the factory fire and fish are now returning to the area.
“The multiagency clean-up operation and recovery phase will continue over the coming weeks and our officers will continue with routine water sampling of the river Alyn.”
