An investigation has been launched after reports up to 10,000 gallons of slurry spilled into a river in Carmarthenshire.

Environment body Natural Resources Wales said early signs on Wednesday suggested pollution had entered a stream known as Rotten Pill in Towy valley.

It is not yet known if any fish have died.

Jonathan Willington, of NRW, said officers were "taking action".
