Police searching for missing Welsh rugby player Brooke Morris have found a body in a stretch of the River Taff.

Officers had been carrying out searches of rivers and waterways near Trelewis in Merthyr Tydfil following the 22-year-old's disappearance on Saturday.

She was last seen at about 2.30am after her friends had given her a lift home from the town centre, but detectives believed she had not gone inside.

It is believed she then walked towards a bridge which crosses the river near her home.

A South Wales Police statement said: "Formal identification has not yet taken place, but Brooke's family have been informed and continue to be supported by officers."
