Three motorcyclist deaths in crashes over the bank holiday have prompted calls for vigilance on the road.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service told motorists to "remain cautious" of bikers.

A crash early Friday morning in Neath resulted in a fire involving three cars. That afternoon two motorcycles and a lorry collided near Cardigan.

On Saturday afternoon a motorbike and 4x4 towing a trailer carrying an inflatable boat collided on the B4548.

Christopher Nigel Lawrence, 51, from Cardigan, died at the scene of the crash on Gwbert Road, near Cardigan.

A police spokesman said a pillion passenger who was also trapped beneath the trailer after the collision was in a stable condition in hospital.

Road traffic collision reduction officer, Kenny MacDonald, said: "Our message is to remain cautious and vigilant while on the road and especially during holiday periods when the roads are busier.

"The Easter weekend saw a spell of sunny weather, which meant many motorcyclists were out on Wales' roads - please remember it is easy to miss them, so ensure you check your mirrors regularly and be spatially aware when your car is both in motion and stationary."
