A grief-stricken mum who cried herself to sleep after her son died woke up hours later to find out that her second son was dead.
Rosemary Davies has been left devastated over the tragic deaths of her sons Scott and Robert.
Robert Davies, 36, also known as Bobby, had rushed home to console his mum at her home in Wrexham after his younger brother Scott Bellis died.
