The police watchdog, the IPCC, has launched an investigation following a crash outside a nightclub in Porthcawl.

It says it will look at the moments leading up to the crash.

A police van was in the vicinity shortly prior to the collision and our independent investigation will examine what police action was taken in respect of the Audi, and whether relevant procedures were followed.

– Jan Williams, IPCC Commissioner for Wales

The IPCC is appealing for any witnesses who were in the vicinity of John Street, The Portway or nearby roads who saw a white, marked police transit van and any interaction it had with a white Audi A4 in the few minutes prior to the collision.
