Woman hit and killed by car outside I’m A Celeb castle

Caption: A547 at Abergele is closed due to a collision

A police investigation was under way today into a fatal collision involving a pedestrian and a car outside the I’m a Celebrity castle.

The A547 was closed at Abergele, North Wales, for more than 15 hours as officers investigated the tragedy at teatime yesterday. It happened on a dark stretch of road with a 60mph limit.

One local man said: ‘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 also 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 fans outside the castle on Saturday night. But whether the show had anything to do with what happened, I don’t know. There is a private entrance into the castle grounds nearby.’

On social media there were claims that some fans were climbing walls to try to get snaps.

North Wales police said: ‘We are appealing for witnesses following a collision on the A547 Abergele Road near Llanddulas in which a woman has sadly died.

‘We received a report at 5.06pm on Saturday of a collision involving a female pedestrian and a blue Volvo estate car at a location 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 said: ‘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 informed.
