North Wales Police say a woman has died following a collision near Betws-y-Coed.

The woman, who was aged in her 70’s, was a passenger on a motorcycle which was in collision with a Nissan Qashqai yesterday on the A470.

The male rider remains in a serious condition in Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor.

We are continuing to appeal for witnesses, and are particularly keen to trace the driver of a white coloured vehicle who may have witnessed the collision.

The A470 re-opened shortly before 7pm and I would like to thank local residents and members of the public for their patience.

Anyone who may have information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact the Roads Policing Unit based at Llandegai on 101, quoting reference number S152191.

Sir Tom Jones has admitted his wife of nearly sixty years has been battling depression since she was young.

Speaking to the Sunday Times magazine, Sir Tom said his wife Linda has 'lost her spark' and let herself go.

The Welsh singer called his marriage of 58 years 'rock solid', and said 'all the rest was fun and games'.

He has previously said he would not be able to carry on singing if his wife died.

Mrs Jones has emphysema and has twice had brushes with cancer. The pair have been married since Jones was sixteen.

She's the most important thing in my life. An unbelievable woman. Linda is the love of my life and she still is, even though she doesn't look like she did.

I don't look like I did either, but I try my best.

– Sir Tom Jones
