Dyfed Powys Police say it has been a "painstaking and methodical" investigation with assistance from police forces across south Wales.

The nature of this fire was extremely intense and destructive and it has presented us with significant difficulties as we work tirelessly to assess the scene and recover the remains which is why it is taking a considerable time.

Tony Brown, South Wales Police Chief Superintendent

The police added the investigation is ongoing and the cause of the fire is still unexplained.
