North Wales Police have confirmed a motorbiker has died after a crash near Betwys-y-Coed.

He was killed after a crash involving his motorbike, and two other vehicles, on the A5 towards Bethesda on Sunday afternoon.

Police say the 27-year-old victim was from Merseyside, and his family have been told.

Inspector Alun Davies of the Roads Policing Unit said: "We are appealing for the occupants of any vehicles that were travelling on the road at the time and may have witnessed the collision, to contact us urgently.

"The collision happened on the A5 between Betws-y-Coed and the Swallow Falls. 

"This is the section of road where there are two lanes as travelling towards Bangor and a single carriageway towards Betws y Coed.

"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."
