The couple who may have drowned trying to rescue their dog have been formally named by police.

Alicia Williams, 25, who has a young daughter, and boyfriend David Platt, also 25, were found dead last night by the River Clywedog, near Wrexham, North Wales, where they had been walking their dogs.

It is feared that the couple entered the river trying to rescue one of their dogs and drowned in fast currents caused by the heavy rainfall.
