An operation was underway today in Mumbles[1] to remove a car that went over a cliff and crashed onto rocks[2] below earlier this week.

She was then taken to Morriston Hospital[3] by ambulance where she was treated for her injuries.

The 37-year-old, who has not been identified, was later detained under the Mental Health Act. “We got the call last night from an insurance company to go down and recover the vehicle,” says Tommy Cant from Ken Williams Recovery, called in to retrieve the vehicle.

“We went down there at about 12.30pm this afternoon and left the scene at about 2.15pm.  “We used a crane to move the car from the rocks and took it back to the depot in Swansea on the back of a recovery truck.  

“It was in a hell of a mess.

The tide has obviously spun it around like a washing machine.”
