A man believed to have fallen into the river at Llanfaes Bridge in Brecon on Friday morning has been named as 54 year-old Steve Moore.

Dyfed Powys Police and a team from Brecon Mountain Rescue have been carrying out further searches for the third day today as the river level has dropped and visibility in the water improved.

The search had to be called off yesterday and on Friday as the river was swollen and fast flowing and deemed to dangerous to continue.

Search Officers have been carrying out checks along the river, the force helicopter has flown along the length of the river using specialist heat seeking equipment and the mountain rescue team have been on the river in kayaks. Other searches in and around the town also continue. We have specially trained officers supporting the family during this difficult time and keeping them up to date with the search operation.”
