The driver was the only occupant of the car. Police are now urging witnesses to get in touch.

Sergeant Jason Diamond of the Roads Policing Unit said: “We are appealing to anybody who may have witnessed the collision, or who may have been travelling along the A4244 just prior to the collision to come forward. We are also keen to speak to anybody who may have dash cam footage.

“The road remains closed at this time to allow colleagues from the Forensic Collision Investigation Team to carry out their preliminary investigation, and diversions are in place. We’d like to thank the motoring public and local community for their patience.”

The road remains shut, with motorists reporting delays in the area. Diversions are in place, causing delays on the A4244 and surrounding roads, including the B4409, A5 and A55.
