A baby boy has died and a woman is fighting for her life after their car was involved in a crash in Wales yesterday.

North Wales Police were called to the scene on the A55 near Gwalchmai on Anglesey at around 2pm to a collision between between a Ford Mondeo and an HGV.

The 21-month-old boy was pronounced dead at the scene.

The female front seat passenger is being treated in a Stoke hospital and is described as being in a critical condition. The male driver was uninjured.

It is understood that the occupants of the second vehicle were unhurt.
