Wrexham drowning: David Platt and Alicia Williams' deaths 'accidental'

A coroner has recorded verdicts of accidental death after a Wrexham couple drowned in a swollen river last September while walking their dogs.

David Platt and Alicia Williams, both 25 and from Ruabon, died in the River Clywedog at Felin Puleston.

The inquest in Mold was told it was not known how the pair came to be in the water, but at the time it was suggested they had tried to save one of the dogs.

Deputy coroner Nicola Jones called for safety improvements in the area.
