The families of four miners killed at the Gleision Colliery two years ago today say they are trying to move on.
They were speaking at the unveiling of a new memorial to the men, which has been placed near the pit in the Swansea Valley.
Today marks two years since the Gleision Colliery mining disaster in the Swansea Valley. Four men died after getting trapped underground when a tunnel they were working in filled with water.
It was the worst mining disaster in Wales in recent times.
Three men initially escaped and a search and rescue operation was launched to find the other four miners who were trapped 300 ft below the ground.
Philip Hill, 44, Charles Breslin, 62, David Powell, 50 and Garry Jenkins, 39 were all found dead the following day.
Carwyn Jones, Wales' First Minister described the deaths as "a tragedy for all of Wales."
On Friday, a memorial stone in recognition of the miners was unveiled at the former Tareni Colliery, a short distance from the Gleision site.
A memorial stone in recognition of the miners who lost their lives in the Gleision Colliery disaster will be officially unveiled today.
David Powell, 50, Garry Jenkins, 39, Charles Breslin, 62, and Phillip Hill, 44, lost their lives when the mine flooded in September 2011.
The stone is located on the site of the former Tareni Colliery, a short distance from the entrance of Gleision Colliery.
