Brecon community 'must grieve' crash victims

A priest leading a memorial service for the victims of a crash in Powys has said the community needs to grieve.

Father Ben Andrews told BBC Wales friends and family must be given time to come to terms with the deaths of three teenagers and a pensioner.

Alesha O'Connor, Rhodri Miller, Corey Price, all aged 17 and from Barry, and Margaret Challis, 68, from Merthyr Tydfil, were killed in Friday's collision on the A470 near Storey Arms, Brecon.

Up to 1,000 people attended the service in Vale of Glamorgan on Wednesday evening.

The 500-seat Windsor Road chapel in Barry was full with hundreds outside.

A service was also held at Cardiff's St David's College where Alesha attended.
