Tributes have been paid to a "kind, funny, thoughtful and beautiful" woman who was killed in a car crash.

Trudy Williams, 28, from the Nantyffyllon area of Maesteg, died following a crash on the A4063 in Maesteg shortly before 9.30pm on Wednesday, August 10.

The keen runner's family has paid tribute following their sudden and tragic loss, saying: “Trudy was just an amazing person. She was kind, funny, thoughtful and beautiful inside and out.

"She lived an active life and was part of the Yr Hen Blwyf running club which played a massive part in her life. She volunteered for Rookwood Sound Radio in her spare time, which just tells you the type of person she was.

“She has touched so many people in so many ways. She was successful in almost everything she put her mind to and we know would have gone on to achieve so much more in life."

Outpouring from the community

The family say their grief is "so raw" but they were "humbled" by the outpouring of kind words and support they've received from the community.

The family added: "We just want Trudy to be remembered for all the good she has done and she has left our hearts forever broken.

"Finally, as a family we want to thank all the emergency services and anyone else at scene who tried to help Trudy. We are so grateful for all your efforts.”

Police, firefighters and paramedics attended the scene which was a crash between a Hyundai and a Renault Clio. Two other people were taken to hospital with minor injuries.
