Caravan fire kills two in Snowdonia National Park

Two people have been killed and two others were seriously injured in a caravan fire, police say.

Officers were called to the Sunny Sands caravan park in Talybont, near Barmouth, Gwynedd, shortly before 0200 BST on Saturday.

Two people were confirmed dead at the scene, and "an elderly woman and a young girl" were airlifted by police helicopter to Ysbyty Gwynedd hospital.

Police said an investigation into the cause of the fire was continuing.

A North Wales Police spokeswoman said: "On arrival at the site the caravan was well alight and two people were confirmed to be dead.

"Two females were also airlifted by police helicopter to Ysbyty Gwynedd. The females are an elderly woman and a young girl.

"The investigation is continuing into the cause of the fire. There are no further details at present."

Bosses at the caravan park, which is set in the Snowdonia National Park, were unavailable for comment.

The park, owned and operated by the same family for more than 45 years, features a seafront club house, indoor heated swimming pool, children's play area and amusement arcade.
