Eifion Gwynne: 1,200 'show respect' at rugby player's funeral

More than 1,200 people have attended the funeral of a mid Wales rugby player killed in Spain.

Father-of-three Eifion Gwynne, 41, an electrician who played rugby for Aberystwyth and Llandovery, died in October after an accident in Malaga.

On Saturday, his casket was escorted to Morfa Chapel in Aberystwyth by former players from the town's rugby team.

Family friend Gwion James said Mr Gwynne was a "proud Welshman" who was also "proud of his family".
