A motorcyclist has died following a crash on the A5 in Conwy county.

Police said the 27-year-old from Merseyside was travelling between Betws-y-Coed and the Swallow Falls landmark when the incident happened just before 13:00 BST on Sunday.

A Mitsubishi towing a trailer, and a Citroen C-Crosser SUV were also involved.

North Wales Police has appealed for witnesses to the incident to come forward.

"In particular, we are keen to speak to the occupants of a car which was following two minibuses towing trailers, as the buses were slowing down to make a left turn," said Insp Alun Davies.
