Dolgarrog dam disaster memorial renovated

A memorial garden has been renovated as part of a service to remember 16 people who died after a dam failed, flooding a village in Conwy county over 90 years ago.

Six children were among those killed when water and boulders struck Dolgarrog on 2 November 1925.

The flooding was triggered by a failure of the Eigiau dam, which was breached following two weeks of heavy rain.

The community have received more than £22,000 in grants to renovate a garden and rural walk.

BBC Wales' Roger Pinney was at the unveiling of the new memorial.
