The incident happened at around 1:25am this morning and involved a yellow Volkwagen Beetle travelling on the B4314, at the junction for Llan Mill/Lampeter Velfrey and the road between Narberth and Princes Gate.

The male driver and female passenger died, whilst another male passenger was taken to Glangwili Hospital where he remains in a "serious but stable" condition. The next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

The road was closed but has since re-opened.

I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision, or was travelling along that stretch of road between 1.15am and 1.25am and may have information that will assist the investigation to contact us by calling 101.

Princes Gate Spring Water has announced plans to invest £5.5 million in a major expansion project, which aims to double staff numbers and more than triple production volumes.

As part of the project, the Narberth-based business is investing in a new bottling line, which is capable of producing 37,000 bottles an hour - increasing their annual production to a potential 370 million.

The expansion is being supported by £250,000 business finance from the Welsh Government.

Over the next three years the company is expected to create 25 new jobs, bringing the total number of people working on site to over 50.

This investment will create a range of news jobs in rural Wales and help Princes Gate Spring Water - one of our iconic Welsh brands - reach new markets both in the UK and overseas and increase turnover.
