Dyfed Powys detectives working on the unsolved murder of Welsh backpacker Kirsty Jones say they're 'optimistic' that further progress can be made in the case.

Kirsty, from Tredomen, near Brecon, was found strangled at a guest house in Chiang Mai twelve years ago.

Dyfed Powys Police have been in Bangkok along with Kirsty's mother, Sue Jones, where they've been liaising with Thai police and nationals in continued efforts to find her killer. The force is also offering a £10,000 reward for information.

In a statement, Detective Superintendent Andy John said Dyfed Powys Police were pleased with the updates provided by their Thai counterparts.
