Police trying to locate next of kin of collision victim

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.

Brechfa rave: Locals urged not to ‘take matters into their own hands’

Published

on

POLICE currently monitoring a large gathering in the Brechfa area have urged local residents to let them deal with the matter.

When Dyfed-Powys Police became aware of the illegal rave in the early hours of Sunday morning, the event was already well under way.

Due to the number of people involved, and the safety concerns of breaking up an event of this size in a remote location, the decision was taken to prioritise disrupting and stopping any further people entering.

A spokesperson for Dyfed Powys Police said: “A police presence is being maintained today and the gathering is being closely monitored continuously, in order to minimise disruption to the local community. Officers are liaising with concerned residents in the area. The National Police Air Service also assisted this morning to gather further intelligence and evidence.

“This type of event causes considerable anxiety and distress to the community. There is little doubt that these types of events are very well planned, organised and that local knowledge is important in drawing down the main group to a particular ‘vulnerable’ field, or area of land.

“We assure local communities that appropriate action is being taken to disrupt and deal with this event, and we will robustly investigate any criminal offences discovered.

“We understand the strength of feelings in respect of this, but we urge locals not to take matters into their own hands, and let the police deal with it. We do not want potential attendees to the gathering to be under any illusions either – do not travel to the area as officers are there and you will be turned away.”
