THE LANDLORDS of a pub will return to court next month after admitting breaching health and safety regulations relating to the death of a woman.

Olwen Collier suffered serious head injuries after falling down the cellar of the Stag and Pheasant in Carmel on January 12 last year. She was airlifted to the University Hospital of Wales, but died from her injuries four days later.

Philip and Tracy Hawkins, both of Llandeilo Road in Carmel, were charged with failing to discharge general health and safety duty to a person other than an employee.

It was alleged that they failed to ensure that Ms Collier was not exposed to risks to her health and safety at the pub.
