A man who filmed himself raping a woman on her phone as she slept has been jailed.

Cameron Hassan, 31, of no fixed abode, attacked the woman, raping her as she slept in Ammanford in August 2021.

Hassan, who was midway through his trial, changed his plea to guilty after the jurors were shown the video clip of the attack.

Hassan appeared before Swansea Crown Court on Thursday (June 23) where he was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
