A man has died after a crash on a main route in and out of Cardiff this afternoon.

The 70-year-old driver died in hospital, after his silver Peugeot crashed into a wall opposite the entrance to the Blackweir ambulance depot on North Road at around 12.10pm. Earlier traffic reports had suggested the car hit a speed camera.

North Road was closed for around an hour and a half while the vehicle was recovered and police investigations were carried out.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or who stopped to provide assistance, and have not yet given their details to police, is asked to call 101 quoting reference 1600472099.
