Tributes to Teen After Tywyn Death

5 August 2018, 10:30


Tributes are being paid to a teenager who died yesterday after being pulled out of the water in Tywyn on Tuesday.

He's been named locally as Blake Ward. He was 16, he was from the West Midlands and has been described on social media as a "beautiful, brave, kind hearted, clever boy".

Three teenagers were pulled out of the water that day. One was sent to Liverpool's Alder Hey, and the others were sent to Ysbyty Gwynedd.

There have since been calls to improve the safety measures at the beachfront.
