An elderly man who died when his car crashed into a wall has been named as a town councillor and former WRU referee.

Dennis Lewis, 89, from Cwmtwrch, Swansea, died when his Nissan Juke left Dwr y Felin Road, Neath, at about 14:35 GMT on Monday.

The road was closed for much of the afternoon and evening as officers investigated.

South Wales Police said Mr Lewis was well known in the Ystradgynlais area, where he was a town councillor.

Officers thanked residents and motorists who were affected by the road closure and have appealed for witnesses.
