A greasy spoon cafe on a caravan site in Wales has changed its menu and made it one of the best places to eat in Britain.

It all started with a £3 pound, all day breakfast. But now The Marram Grass Cafe, housed in an old potting shed with a tin roof is a new entry in the 2016 Good Food Guide.

Melissa Bowles, originally from Wiltshire, has not been seen since around 2pm today when she left Bala Leisure Centre.

Melissa is described as around 5’5 tall with blonde hair of medium length but normally worn up.

I am appealing for anyone who has sighted Melissa, or knows of her whereabouts, to contact the police as we are concerned for her welfare.

I’d also ask Melissa herself to contact police, family or friends to let them know that she is safe and well.”

Funeral of north Wales teen Charlotte Speddy to be held

Charlotte Speddy died on August 18th.

The funeral of a north Wales teen who died 15 years after receiving pioneering surgery in America will take place in Bethesda later.

Charlotte Speddy was born with a rare spinal and rib defect which stopped her lungs growing properly. Friends and family came together to raise more than £100,000 for her to travel to America for life-changing treatment.

Her grandfather Bill said she was "brilliant, she never complained."

Charlotte died on August 18th after being taken into hospital with breathing difficulties. A family service will be held at her home before a horse-drawn carriage procession through the town to Glanogwen Church.
