Two 999 calls made by care worker Ffion Wyn Roberts a short time before she was killed have been played to a murder trial jury.

The 22-year-old was heard to say in one call: "I've heard my windows have been smashed tonight."

The body of Ms Roberts, 22, was found in a drainage ditch in Porthmadog, Gwynedd, in April last year.

Iestyn Davies, 54, from Porthmadog, denies murder. The case continues at Caernarfon Crown Court.

The jury heard how an officer at the North Wales police control room told her: "If you phone back please do so when you are sober and not on 999".

Ms Roberts responded: "I'm not drunk."

She was told: "Don't phone us on 999, it's not an emergency, is it?"

The jury was given a transcript of the conversations.

Mr Justice Lloyd Jones said: "It's difficult to make any sense without a transcript."

Earlier, Elwen Evans QC, prosecuting, read an expert's report which said that on the night of her death Ms Roberts had more than three times the amount of alcohol in her blood than would be legal for a driver.

The jury has heard that she would have been drunk when she walked home to Porthmadog in the early hours after a night out, having been with friends in a pub at the nearby village of Tremadog.

The case is continuing.
