Trapped miners: 'Everyone devastated'

A third miner has been confirmed dead at a Swansea Valley colliery, where four miners were reported trapped underground on Thursday.

County councillor Rosalyn Davies, who knows three of the families, said hope was fading in the community but support for the rescue effort was not.

She said she had received phone calls from many places, and "it's so good to realise that there are other people thinking of you in situations like this. It is some comfort".
