Tributes have been paid to a woman who was killed in a two-vehicle crash.

Ceri Lyn Jones, 34, died after the head-on collision between a Land Rover and a smaller vehicle on the A4244 at Deiniolen near Llanberis, Gwynedd.

Two others were taken to hospital on Saturday but police said their injuries were not thought to the life threatening.

Ms Jones' family said she "loved life and strived on being the life and soul of any party".

Her father Raymond added that she had a "happy outlook on life" and thanked her large circle of friends for their support.

Her mother Val said: "No parent expects to have to bury their child before them. Life is so unfair. Ceri was so beautiful."

The family said Ms Jones, who had worked for the Countryside Council for Wales in Bangor, relocated to Cardiff before moving back home again recently to work for the Welsh government at its Llandudno Junction office.

She was a former pupil of Ysgol Syr Hugh Owen and first worked with her father at Llanberis post office after leaving school.

Her brother Gavin and sisters Nia and Emma said she was very family-orientated and helped look after an aunt who had been left disabled after a serious road accident when she was 18.

The road Ms Jones died on was one the family all used regularly.

"Travelling on that road will always be difficult from now on," they said. "We visited the scene today to lay flowers. We just can't believe what's happened - it seems so unreal at the moment."

North Wales Police has asked any witnesses with information about the crash to call 101.

  • Bristol Academy extends reach overseas with first foreign students

    With the doors to its brand new £1million training centre officially open, one of the UK's leading apprentice training providers, Bristol based S&B Automotive Academy, is showcasing its world-class facilities by launching a series of foreign student exchanges for the first time in its 41-year history. To get a flavour of what life is like as an apprentice in the UK, the Academy hosted 16 apprentice engineers and bus drivers from the G9 Automotive College in Hamburg, Germany, as part of a Europe-wide vocational training initiative called the ‘Leonardo Programme’ with support from the European Social Fund. In a reciprocal arrangement, S&B will be sending nine apprentices to Germany during February 2012 so that they can get an appreciation of life in the automotive industry on the Continent. A further three German exchange groups are being planned for next year. Designed to assist the development of vocational skills and training across Europe, including work placements for trainees, the Leonardo Programme has a budget of €1.75bn, which is helping to encourage UK organisations to work with their counterparts abroad. In what is expected to be another challenging year for employers in the UK automotive sector, S&B’s Chief Executive, Jon Winter, claims that the exchange initiative will bring many benefits to the Academy and its apprentices: “In a world of global automotive brands, it’s important for our learners to understand the international context of the industry they have chosen to make their career. This new exchange programme will enable apprentices and Academy staff alike to achieve a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities within the automotive arena in Europe. With the Academy’s influence also extending to the USA and Asia, there’s every possibility that this initiative could move further afield in the future.” Continued Winter: “The need for skilled technicians across the world is on the increase and we actively encourage our apprentices to look at broader horizons during their training. Many of them have already learned the phrase ‘Vorsprung durch Gelehrtheit’, quite simply, ‘Advancement through learning.” In the 2010/11 academic year, S&B doubled the number of successful Apprenticeships over the previous year with some 350 apprentices graduating from the Academy. At the same time, achievement levels reached an all-time high with an overall success rate of 85%. For those learners on the Advanced Apprenticeship three-year programme, success rates were even higher, at over 98%.
