A Bangor woman who died after a collision on the B4547 at Pentir on Friday afternoon has been described as "a special wife, mother, daughter and sister" by her family.

Susan Jane Owen, originally from Anglesey, died after being involved in a collision between a white BMW car and a VW transporter van.

It is believed that an item fell from the roof of the transporter and collided with the BMW travelling in the opposite direction.

Not only have I lost a wife, I have lost my love and best friend in the world. There will be a void left in my life after her. I'm so lucky to have enjoyed 28 years of marriage together. 28 years of bringing up two sons who are stars in the eyes of their mother.
