Welsh mine rescue: Carwyn Jones on long wait for the miners' families

The body of one of the four miners trapped in a coal mine near Swansea has been found. Rescuers say he was separated from the other three men by a flooded section of mine which is being pumped out.

The man has not been identified, but all four families have been informed of the death and are waiting for news.

The First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones, has spoken to the families. He said: "There are four groups of people in there waiting to hear the fate of their loved ones. It's a very, very difficult time."
