A 70-year-old woman has died and three others have been injured in a two-vehicle crash in Powys.

Emergency services were called to the collision on the A470 at Commins Coch, Machynlleth, at 23:50 on Saturday.

Fire crews used cutting equipment to free people from the vehicles.

The road was closed in both directions between the A489 at Cemmaes Road roundabout and the junction for B4518, but has since reopened.

Two passengers in a grey Skoda were injured and taken to hospital while the 70-year-old driver died.

A man, who was driving a silver Mazda, is also being treated for his injuries.
