Published

on

DYFED-POWYS POLICE is trying to trace the next of kin of a 58-year-old lady who sadly died as a result of a road traffic collision in Carmarthenshire, south-west Wales.

It is believed the female pedestrian was hit by a car while walking along the B4302 road between Llanedilo and Talley at around 6pm on January 29.

Police are yet to inform the lady’s next of kin of her death as they have been unable to find anyone linked to her.

From investigation, it has been established that the deceased went by different names including Pasqual Lorentz and Gwendy Elizabeth Tolley and she appears to have links in the Birmingham and London areas of England.

Investigating officer, PC Sara John, said: “We have made extensive enquiries in an attempt to trace any relatives of the lady who has sadly died as a result of a road traffic collision.

“We know that she went by several different names and had links to the Birmingham and London areas, however we have now exhausted all other lines of enquiry and appealing for information via the media and social media is our final attempt to find her next of kin.

“This is a really saddening situation and while it is unpleasant news we have to deliver to any next of kin, it is our duty as police to make every attempt to find someone to let them know what has happened.

“She was well known in the local area, but lived alone and did not have any relatives living locally.

“I urge anyone who recognises these names or the lady in the photographs to please, get in touch with Dyfed-Powys Police urgently.”

Anyone who knows this lady and can help police identify her next of kin is asked to call 101 and ask for Dyfed-Powys Police, quoting reference DP-20180129-279. If you are Deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired, text the non-emergency number on 07811 311 908.

Next stage of works to clear Cwmduad landslide

Published

on

PHASE two of the works to stabilise a landslide in Cwmduad has begun following the recovery of a lorry from the river below.

Carmarthenshire County Council is leading the operation to clear the site and re-open the A484 for traffic travelling between Carmarthen and Newcastle Emlyn, following the landslide in October.

Phase one, which commenced before Christmas, created a safe zone for the recovery of a lorry that was swept in to the river during the storm.

That recovery took place earlier today (Monday, January 14, 2019).

Phase two, to permanently stabilise the embankment, involves complex drainage and geotechnical works.

The highway structure will then be assessed before any indication can be given as to when the road will re-open.

The council has thanked the community, and affected commuters, for their patience whilst site assessments and works have been underway.

Ruth Mullen, Director of Environment for Carmarthenshire County Council, said: “We are now making progress in what has been a highly complex operation and legal process between the council, partner agencies and the landowner.

“We fully appreciate the impact this has had on the community, and we wish to reiterate that we have worked without delay to undertake site investigations in the immediate aftermath of the landslide, along with clearance and construction works to make the area safe.

“We are working as quickly as we can to re-open the road as soon as possible, and would like to thank those affected most sincerely for their patience.”

Until the road is re-opened, traffic will continue to be diverted along the B4333 Carmarthen – Newcastle Emlyn.

Additional bus services remain in place:

  • A shuttle service currently runs from Cwmduad to Tycoch to catch the 460 service at 7.25am, 9.35am and 10.55am. Return journeys are at 2.25pm and 4.45pm.
  • The 460 service is currently operating on a diversion route
