A convicted armed robber has been found dead at a Bridgend prison.

Jeffrey Griffiths, 35, from Ravenhill in Swansea, was found "unresponsive" by Parc Prison wardens on 11 February.

He was jailed for seven years in 2013 after being found guilty at Swansea Crown Court of holding a "vulnerable" man hostage at knifepoint.

G4S, which runs the prison, said the ombudsman would investigate and Griffiths' next of kin had been informed.
