Welcome to Colwyn Bay! Enjoy your stay! Witness the wonderful town that once was.
The dream for the people of Colwyn Bay was the Restoration of the Pier. This was a beacon of hope for the town, but now with it's destruction looming, its demolition goes against the public's wishes. This town has nothing left to give, or fight for. It's just another example of another loss to a once Loved town who's glory years have long since faded.
A BTP spokesman said: “We were alerted to reports a person had been struck by a train to the east of Colwyn Bay station.
“Officers attended along with paramedics but unfortunately a man was pronounced dead at the scene.
“An investigation was launched in conjunction with our colleagues at North Wales Police but we are not treating the death as suspicious.
“A file will be prepared and presented to the coroner in due course.”
No further details about the dead man have been released.
The Railway Chaplains tweeted: “Sorry to see that a person has been struck by a train at Colwyn Bay. Our thoughts with family, driver and all rail staff.”
The train involved was the 11.44am Llandudno to Manchester Piccadilly service operated by Arriva Trains Wales. No one was hurt on the train.
Following the incident the line was closed in both directions and passengers faced delays of up to two hours on trains between Llandudno Junction and Chester. The line was reopened shortly after 3pm but there were some knock-on delays until late evening.
