A 90-year-old female pedestrian who was critically injured in a collision with a car in Penarth has died.
Police are reminding people to make sure their homes are safe and secure over Christmas.
South Wales Police say it's important to remain vigilant this time of year particularly as there has been a recent increase in burglaries across Cardiff:
- Lock all doors and windows - even if you're only leaving home for a short time
- Don't leave presents or valuables on display
- Set your burglar alarm at night
- Be aware of uninvited callers - check identities and if in doubt do not let them in
- If you are going away over Christmas - be careful who you tell, consider who may have access to messages that you post on social media advertising that your homes will be empty
Experts also want people to be mindful of their friends and neighbours:
Plaid Cymru's Rhun ap Lorwerth AM has outlined how Wales' low-wage economy can be overturned.
Highlighting figures on average wages in Wales, Rhun ap Iorwerth said that Welsh wages were on average £2,000 lower per year than the rest of the UK.
He said employment levels in Wales matched UK average levels but jobs are generally of lower quality in Wales, resulting in lower wages.
The average weekly wage in Wales is £383.30 per week, compared to the UK average of £417.90.
The Welsh Government says it is continuing to work to close the historic wage gap by attracting investment, creating jobs and promoting economic growth.

Today is the last full shopping day before Christmas, and it's also the busiest.
Figures show people in Wales plan to spend almost £600 on Christmas this year.
But around a third of us are worried about how we will afford it.
And three in ten of us will turn to credit cards to fund the festive season.
