Family tributes for lost miners

The bodies of Charles Breslin, Phillip Hill, Garry Jenkins and David Powell were recovered from Gleision colliery on 16 September after it became flooded.

Relatives have thanked rescuers and the community for their support as an appeal fund reached more than £55,000.

Meanwhile mining experts have urged the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to review safety procedures.

The families added their own tributes to those left by the community to the four men who died.
