A woman has died and three others are in hospital after a car left a road and crashed down an embankment in Carmarthenshire.

The injured young women were airlifted to hospital following the incident on the A4069 Llangadog to Brynamman road on Sunday at about 20:50 BST.

Dyfed-Powys Police said the woman who died was a passenger in the car, a Ford Ka.

The force is appealing for witnesses to phone police on 101.

The Brecon, Central Beacons and Western Beacons mountain rescue teams all helped in the operation, as did an RAF rescue helicopter from Chivenor in Devon.

Police are still trying to build up a full picture of what happened.

"What we know at the moment is that four women were travelling in a red Ford Ka which has left the road and gone down an embankment on the road between Llangadog and Brynamman," said Chief Inspector Pete Westlake.

Of the injured, one suffered broken bones, another a fractured leg and a third is stable with more serious multiple and extensive injuries.

"Officers are still at the scene carrying out their inquiries and we ask members of the public and the media to bear with us while the investigation takes place," said Chief Insp Westlake.

"In the meantime if anyone does have information no matter how insignificant they think it might be, please contact us at Ammanford police station on 101."
