The parents of a woman who died following a crash on Rhigos Mountain last week have paid tribute to her.

Jennifer Evans from Dowlais suffered serious injuries when the van she was travelling in left the A4061 mountain road in Rhondda Cynon Taf at around 4am on Friday.

She died at the University Hospital of Wales the next day.

Her mum Shelly and dad Paul said their 'lively and bubbly' daughter had been a carer for disabled people and enjoyed playing the violin.

Jen was a wonderful daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt and cousin who will be truly missed by all who knew her. Jen had a lively and bubbly personality and was always full of fun.
