BBC coverage of Welsh mine rescue operation

Specialist mine rescue teams, including divers, are still searching for four missing workers in a flooded coal pit near Swansea.

They are hoping the men are alive and were able to find pockets of air in which to shelter when water burst through a retaining wall and cut off their escape from the pit.
