A murder investigation has been launched following the discovery of a body in the Pontwalby area of Glynneath early yesterday evening.

I am keen to hear from anyone who was in the Pontwalby area between 2pm and 8pm on Monday evening who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously in the area.

The investigation is in its early stages and specialist trained officers are supporting family members.

I urge anyone who may have information no matter how insignificant they may think it is to please contact the major incident room.
