“We are currently investigating a mine shaft collapse in Solvay Banks Park, a public park and play area in Southsea, Wrexham.
“The collapse occurred in April and was reported by the Local Authority. We have since carried out emergency work to stabilize the area pending further investigation.
“Our investigations have shown that the shaft in question is likely to be around 110m depth with two other shafts near the scene also being of a similar depth.
“Ground investigation and surveying works are now planned and due to the location of the incident, we are carrying out these works as a priority.
“Following the ground investigation works, we will be able to design an appropriate treatment for the collapsed shaft and consider if the other shafts require any proactive works.
“We will keep the public updated on our progress. In the meantime, please stay away from the area and follow the safety signs.”
