A motorcyclist has died after a crash on the A470 on Sunday afternoon at Dinas Mawddwy.

His next of kin have been told. Police are appealing for witnesses.

Our thoughts very much remain with the man’s family at this time.

We are appealing for witnesses to this collision and anybody who may have information is asked to contact us. The motorcyclist, who was riding on a black Honda motorcycle, was travelling along the A470 towards the Dolgellau area, therefore we are appealing for anybody who may have dash cam footage from their vehicles to contact us.

'Small controlled explosion' in Amlwch area

North Wales Police say a search warrant was conducted in the Amlwch area of Anglesey on Tuesday. It was carried out with the National Maritime Agency and English Heritage and Royal Logistic Corps of the British Army and was in relation to 'the appropriation and retention of maritime articles and war artefacts'.

Officers say a small controlled explosion was carried out as a result. Another property of interest was identified in the Bangor area and searches are currently being conducted with the consent of the owners.

No-one has been arrested and searches and enquiries by all agencies involved are set to continue over the coming days.

This was an intelligence driven operation conducted with other agencies to recover items removed inappropriately from military and commercial ship wrecks across the United Kingdom.

I can confirm a small controlled explosion was conducted late on Tuesday the 5th of September with the cooperation of a local farmer, to destroy a small number of items of ordinance recovered during our searches.

I would like to reassure residents of Anglesey that these items posed no risk to local communities and were appropriately dealt with by the military personnel present in support of this operation.
