Police have recovered a car bumper believed to belong to Russell Sherwood, a 69-year-old man who went missing during Storm Angus in South Wales on Sunday.

The bumper bears the registration of Mr Sherwood's vehicle, officials said.

Officers resumed the search on Tuesday and said they would focus their attention on the River Ogmore, specifically the area near the dipping bridge.

Superintendent Simon Davies of South Wales Police said: "This remains a difficult search in very testing conditions. The river is very swollen and fast flowing, and as such specialist officers with specialist equipment are conducting the search.

"The conditions at the search area remain treacherous and while we understand that people want to assist in helping to find Mr Sherwood, we would strongly advise the public to stay clear of the area."

Hospital 'used previously rejected kidney' in transplant

The family of a man who died weeks from an infection after a kidney "couldn't understand" why the hospital that treated him used an organ refused by other hospitals, an inquest has heard.

ITV News Correspondent Rupert Evelyn reports from an inquest into the deaths of Robert Stuart and Darren Hughes, who received allegedly infected donor kidneys at the University Hospital of South Wales.

Prosecutor: Mills was 'jealous, controlling and callous'

The senior prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) Wales said Carl Mills was responsible for "starting a devastating fire" that had "distressing and tragic consequences".

He did so knowing full well who was in the house at the time and the evidence of his jealous and controlling nature makes it all too clear what his intentions were.

Once the fire had taken hold, neighbours and friends of Kim, Kayleigh and Kimberley Buckley did whatever they could to try and assist at the scene.

In contrast, Mills himself displayed a callous, almost casual disregard for the well-being of those trapped inside the house.
