Gleision disaster: Memorial unveiled on second anniversary of mining tragedy

A memorial to four men killed in a Swansea Valley mining tragedy two years ago has been unveiled.

David Powell, 50, Charles Breslin, 62, Philip Hill, 44, and Garry Jenkins, 39, died in Gleision drift mine when it flooded after a retaining wall failed.

The stone for the memorial plaque, organised by Ystalyfera's community council, has been donated by a local quarry.

The second anniversary of the men's deaths is marked on Sunday.

Brian Meechan was at the ceremony.
