A family have paid tribute to a "loving father" who died following a traffic collision on Llan-y-Pwll link road last weekend.

48-year-old Sion Leslie Gears from the Rhosrobin area was pronounced dead at the scene.

His family issued the following statement:

A loving father to Ryan, and beloved son to Sandra and Denzil Gears. He was adored by brothers - his twin, Russell and younger brother, Darren. Sion will be missed by all that met him.

Think of a happy memory and smile when you think of him. They broke the mould when Sion was born. Rest in peace.
