Police say the crash involved a blue Peugeot 307, Vauxhall Meriva, a grey Mazda motor caravan, a HGV and a lorry

The driver and passenger of the silver Vauxhall, believed to be from the Whitland area, died at the scene and next of kin have been informed.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue crews from Carmarthen and Llandeilo used hydraulic cutting gear to pull people from the crash and the injured were dealt with by paramedics, said the service.
