The mother of a four-year-old boy who died in a house fire in Neath Port Talbot has been told she will not face criminal charges.

Jac Evan Davies died following a blaze at his family home in Alltwen near Pontardawe in the early hours of 27 July.

His mother Jennifer Davies, 28, escaped the blaze along with her 11-month-old baby and daughter Kelsey, six.

Her other son Riley, three, was rescued by a firefighter.

South Wales Police later arrested and bailed a 28-year-old woman on suspicion of child neglect.

"A 28 year-old woman has been released without charge following advice from the Crown Prosecution Service," a police spokesman said.

The inquest for Jac Davies is still to take place.
