Police searching for a missing man have found a body at a pond at Llanddewi Brefi, Ceredigion.

Dyfed Powys Police received a report that a man, along with others, had entered a pond in the area yesterday afternoon.

Police say other swimmers got out of the pond and raised the alarm when the man did not return a little while later. There was a licensed festival taking place on nearby land.

Specialist searches were conducted last night and continued today in the pond and the surrounding area, and a body was recovered from the water this afternoon.

Efforts are being made to trace the next of kin.
