The four family members killed in a devastating mid Wales reservoir car plunge tragedy were named by the police tonight.

Emyr Glyn Griffith, 66, Phyllis Iris Hooper, 84, Peter Briscome, 14, and Liam Govier, 14, all died in the tragic car smash.



They were named officially by Dyfed Powys Police.



Denise Griffith, 55, was at the wheel of the Peugeot 807 but survived to see her husband, mother, and two teenage foster sons killed.



The accident happened at Bwlch y Gle Dam, Clywedog, Llanidloes, on the B4518, during the family's early Easter break.



The family, from Pontypridd, near Cardiff, had been holidaying together in the Machynlleth area.



A Peugeot 807 carrying the five people careered off a road after apparently being "clipped" by another car.
