A woman whose daughter was killed in a car crash in Swansea has called for speed cameras to be introduced in the area after a number of other crashes have occurred on the same stretch of road.

Tracy Kennedy's daughter, Kelly, died in a head-on crash on the A4067 near Pontardawe in 2016.

Two men, who were racing their cars at speeds of 90mph when they struck Kelly's car, were jailed for the incident.

''She was happy, fun loving, caring, kind.'' Tracy said.

''She had a heart of gold and if she could help anybody then she would. She worked really hard.

''Kelly was killed outright in the crash and I just broke. My son and my husband are devastated.''

In the last two weeks, an 11-year-old boy was flown to hospital after a serious crash involving six cars on the same stretch of road.

Tracy now wants Swansea Council to take action.

''I think they need cameras up there to lower the speed and white lines so you can't overtake because that stretch of road is so dangerous.''

Swansea Council say they are aware of concerns about the road.

Tracy meanwhile continues to live with the loss of her daughter, and hopes any changes that may come are not too late for any other families.
