An investigation is continuing after a woman in her 60s died and a second one was left seriously injured following a car crash in Llandudno.
The incident happened at a bend on the lane between the Llandudno link road and Penrhyn Bay, near Glanwydden, last night and involved a black Renault Clio which careered into a field.
