Three pensioners died near their homes in Aberangell, Gwynedd, as they returned from Sunday church service. Police said that their car spun into the path of an oncoming car after it collided with an overtaking vehicle on the A470. Eunice Jones, 71, was driving her sister Catherine Pugh, 81, and their brother-in-law John Roberts, 81, to their homes.
Anthony Manetta, 46, from Brighton, East Sussex, and his daughter, Abbey, 19, travelling in a Westfield kit car, and Bertie Williams, 67, and his wife Margaret, 63, travelling in a Montego, all died when their cars collided in Woodingdean, Brighton.
