A man in his 40s has died after being hit by a car on one of the main routes into Swansea.

Emergency services were called to the A483 Fabian Way near Swansea just after 07:30 GMT on Thursday.

Police said the pedestrian had been near the "Amazon" roundabout when there was a collision with a white Mini Countryman vehicle.

The road was closed between junction 42 of the M4 and the Jersey Marine roundabout for about five hours.

It led to widespread delays, with motorists told to avoid the area.

South Wales Police has appealed for any witnesses to the incident to come forward, especially any who may have dash-cam footage of what happened.

The road has now fully re-opened in both directions.
