Reported on The Daily Post website:
North Wales Police wildlife and environment officer Sergeant Rob Taylor told the Daily Post:
“There are problems with rock climbers using a rockface in Rhyd y Foel which has been closed for 20 years and the BMC declaring it re-opened.
“A lot of unauthorised tree and shrub clearing has taken place which is a protected area. I am investigating. It may potentially be a crime under the Wildlife and Countryside Act."
From the North Wales Limestone Wiki:
"NO GARDENING DURING JANUARY PLEASE WHILST WRITTEN PERMISSION IS OBTAINED"
