A baby has died and a woman is in critical condition after a horror crash involving a car and a lorry in storm-hit Wales.
The 21-month-old baby boy was killed in the collision on the A55 in Anglesey, North Wales on Sunday afternoon.
The woman has been left fighting for life following the incident on the busy dual carriageway.
Police are now appealing for any witnesses who saw a “slow moving” HGV at the time of the crash to contact them.
A spokesman for North Wales Police said: "Sadly we can confirm that a baby has died and a woman has sustained serious, life threatening injuries following a road traffic collision on the A55 near Gwalchmai on Anglesey yesterday afternoon.
"North Wales Police were called at 2.06pm to a report of a collision which involved two vehicles – a Ford Mondeo and a HGV.

Inspector Gareth Jones of the Roads Policing Unit added: “Sadly this is being investigated as a fatal road traffic collision and our heartfelt sympathies remain with the baby boy’s family at this incredibly difficult time.
“The investigation is currently underway and we are appealing to anybody who may have witnesses the collision, or who may have seen either vehicle shortly before 2pm to contact us.”
