PD Sam can be seen sporting a pair of shades as he makes the most of the glorious weather we've been enjoying throughout the day.

And after a pretty soggy couple of days it's about time we all enjoy a drop of warm sunshine!

But will it last? Ruth Wignall has the latest weather forecast here.

Former Detective Sergeant Stephen Phillips, 47, from Swansea and Detective Constable Michael Stokes, 35, from Glynneath, stole bundles of banknotes during a raid on a suspected drug dealer - and more later during a formal cash count at their police station.

"Today’s convictions are the result of a thorough and determined investigation carried out by South Wales Police that evidences our commitment to tackling and rooting out corruption within the force.

“Police officers hold positions of trust and need to set the highest of standards when serving the people of South Wales. These officers have betrayed that trust with their actions.

“These men are now starting prison sentences, and this, I hope, sends out a clear and unequivocal message that South Wales Police will identify and deal with anyone who engages in this type of corrupt behaviour.”

– Asst Chief Con Jon Stratford, South Wales Police

A third officer originally on trial was discharged earlier in proceedings.
