Emergency services have suspended a search of the River Taff in Cardiff after a member of the public reported seeing a body in the water.

South Wales Police were called to a stretch of the river at Penarth Road on Monday but said the search was made hazardous by the fast flowing current.

South Wales Fire and Rescue Service were also called to the scene but left at 23:30 GMT after no body was found.

Emergency services said the incident was now a police matter.
