A popular landlord who ran a number of pubs across west Wales has died in a crash on the A48 in Carmarthen.

Alun Harrow, 76, has been named by police as the victim of the single-vehicle collision on the Pensarn roundabout in the early hours of Thursday, February 29.

Well known across the area for running several pubs across Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, Mr Harrow acted as landlord of The Telegraph in Ammanford, the White Lion in Kidwelly and two pubs in Haverfordwest.

In a statement issued through the police, his family said he would be "sorely missed".

They said: "Alun was a landlord all of his life and predominately a landlord for pubs in the local area.

"He is mostly known for his time in The Telegraph in Ammanford, White Lion in Kidwelly, and more recently The Horse & Groom and the Carmarthen Arms in Haverfordwest.

He will be sorely missed by family and friends.“

Mr Harrow died in hospital following the crash shortly before 3am last Thursday.

Emergency services were called following a report of a car crashing in to a set of traffic lights at around 2.50am on the Pensarn roundabout.

The road was closed in both directions between Nantycaws and Carmarthen throughout the morning while officers investigated the incident, before reopening later that afternoon.
