Hundreds of fish have been killed in a Carmarthenshire river following a slurry spill.

Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is investigating after more than 230 fish - including salmonids, bullheads, eels and lamprey - died in a section of the Afon Taf.

The source has been found and the pollution has stopped, NRW said.

Officers are now carrying out an impact assessment along a 2km (1.3m) stretch of the Afon Hydron.

South west operations manager Andrea Winterton said: "We will continue to monitor the river closely to ensure there are no ongoing environmental issues."
