POLICE have made a fresh appeal for witnesses to a fatal accident in the Amman Valley.

John Gwyn Edwards (left), 72, died after being in collision with a blue Vauxhall Corsa outside Cwmgors Rugby Club, Brynaman Road, Gwaun-cae- Gurwen on Wednesday, November 14, at 4.20pm.

The 19 year-old driver of the blue Vauxhall Corsa and the 25 year-old male driver of a black Proton hatchback were both arrested and have since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

South Wales Police is appealing for anyone who may have seen the two vehicles being driven through the area prior to the collision to contact them.

Roads Policing Inspector Carwyn Evans said: "The two cars drove through this small community for at least two miles before the collision occurred and other road users and residents may remember seeing them. The Proton hatchback in particular is very distinctive, and had silver stripes over its bonnet and boot."

He asked any residents living on the route with private CCTV cameras to get in touch.

"Any information could prove vastly important to our ongoing investigation," he said.
