Rescuers hunt for missing 54 year old in the River Usk

Dyfed Powys Police have confirmed the rescue operation for a missing man, thought to have fallen into the River Usk, is ongoing.

A 54-year-old local man is believed to have fallen into the river near Llanfaes Bridge, Brecon in the early hours of the morning.

At the moment the emergency services are co-ordinating an urgent search of the river and surrounding areas.

As you can imagine with the rainfall we’ve seen recently, the river is moving very quickly, so we are concerned for his safety if he has gone in to the water.
