Two men will be sentenced later this month after they admitted causing the death of a cyclist by careless driving.

Robert Idris Llewellyn (70) from Rhoscolyn was killed in a crash involving a Ford Transit van and a Skoda Octavia at Trefor near Bodedern in April last year.

The drivers, Kevin Woods (62) of Llanrhwydus and Tomos Williams (32) of Llanfwrog, had previously denied causing Mr Llewellyn’s death by dangerous driving. But both men entered guilty pleas to alternative charges before they were due to stand trial at Mold Crown Court.

The prosecution accepted the pleas with the defence applying for reports to be prepared before sentencing took place.

Both Woods and Williams were given interim driving bans by Judge Rhys Rowlands, who told the men that although they had admitted an offence not as serious as the one originally alleged, they should be prepared for all eventualities when they return to court.

Shortly after his death, Mr Llewellyn was described by his family as a ”much loved father, grandfather and husband” who was ”full of life and a real character”.

Woods and Williams were released on bail until sentencing at Caernarfon on Thursday 30th November.
