Tributes paid to 'beautiful' and 'happy' Nina Holmes

The boyfriend of a Gorseinon woman who died at a Bulgarian ski resort bar on Sunday has told ITV News he is returning to the UK today with his girlfriend's body.

Dean Herbert spoke briefly to ITV News to confirm he would be flying home, but said he did not feel ready to comment further.

Mr Herbert also wrote on Facebook: "Sleep tight my babes, promise you're coming home".

Friends of Ms Holmes paid tribute to the 'funny', 'beautiful' and 'happy' 22-year-old, whose family run a local well-known amusements hire company.

I am deeply saddened she is no longer with us. Deepest sympathies to Terry and her loving family.

– Steve Maitland Thomas, friend

Watched you grow from a lovely little girl to a stunning young lady now.

A beautiful angel you are gonna be missed by so many in and out of showland. Keep doing what you do best and rock heaven.

– Hayley Ravenscroft, friend

A Gorseinon woman has died after a night out in a Bulgarian ski resort bar, officials have confirmed.

Nina Holmes, 22, is understood to have collapsed outside BJ's bar in the town of Borovets - 45 miles from the capital Sofia - on Sunday night.

It has been reported that eight other British nationals were taken to hospital following a night out in the resort - which is 45 miles from the capital Sofia - prompting a police investigation.

A bag of chips for 7p - just like in 1973

The family who run a Swansea fish and chip shop chain are celebrating 40 years in the business today, by rolling back their prices to those in 1973.

This is the 'Roma Fish Bar' in Gorseinon, where the family set up their first shop.

That means 5p for a small bag of chips, 7p for medium, and 9p for large.

Frank and Maria Romanello set up their original shop in Gorseinon, and now run five fish and chip shops around the Swansea area, with the help of their four sons.

The fish and chip shops have been family-run for 40 years.
