Search teams are looking for a kayaker who got into difficulty and disappeared in the River Usk in Powys.

The man in his thirties got into difficulty at Llangynidr, near Crickhowell, shortly before 13:00 GMT on Sunday and has not been seen since.

He was with eight other kayakers out in what Dyfed-Powys Police called "difficult and challenging" conditions.

Rescuers are searching seven miles (11kms) of the river for the man, who they said is an experienced kayaker.

A boat matching the one he was using was recovered late Sunday afternoon.

Insp Stuart Eckley from Dyfed-Powys Police explained how the search was being coordinated.
