A memorial service has been held for a Gwynedd woman who was killed in a car crash in Bulgaria.

Mary Caroline Owens, 37, of Morfa Nefyn, died on 7 January alongside her boyfriend, Vez Petrova, in Svistov.

It was -14C and between 03:00-04:00 GMT when their 4x4 came off the road and flipped over. A friend travelling with them ran for help but the couple died at the scene.

The service was taking place at St David's Church, Nefyn, at noon.

Secretary Ms Owens had been travelling in the country for three months with her partner, who is from Bulgaria.

In tribute, her brother Tom said: "We will love you always."
