A body found in the River Taff yesterday has been identified as missing rugby player Brooke Morris.

The body was discovered near Abercynon yesterday afternoon after a major search operation to find Ms Morris this week.

Reports suggest the 22-year-old went missing in the early hours of last Saturday after getting a car ride home with friends.

South Wales Police believe the Ms Morris, who played for Nelson RFC, did not make it back to her home after getting in the car.

Ms Morris lived in the small town of Merthyr Tydfil in Wales, where around 100 locals from the area began a community search for the rugby player.

Members of the community, including local Councillors, have been tweeting their condolences for those who know Ms Morris.
