Tributes have been paid to a great-grandmother who died following a crash in Port Talbot.

87-year-old Phyllis Mahoney, from Baglan, died in hospital following the incident on 31 March.

Two men, aged 33 and 26, were arrested in connection with the incident but have since been released under investigation.

In a statement, her family said she had been "taken from us under such tragic circumstances. To say our lives have been torn apart is an understatement".

She is a loved and respected mother to her three children, Patricia, Peter and Anthony, a much loved and adored grandmother and great-grandmother.

A massive hole has been left in our hearts, our lives will never be the same.

We are trying to make sense of this past week but our grief is so raw.

Our mum will be greatly missed loved and cherished in our hearts forever.

God bless Mum.

– Family of Phyllis Mahoney
