A man has died after falling onto spiked railings while pruning a tree at his home in Merthyr Tydfil.

Peter Davies was chopping branches off a fir tree in his back garden in Twyn on Monday when the incident happened. The 67-year-old widower was flown to hospital by air ambulance, but died of severe blood loss.

A South Wales Police spokesman said they were treating Mr Davies's death as a 'tragic accident.'
