A man's remains have been found at a hotel gutted by a fire.

Nine adults and three children were rescued from Belgrave House Hotel in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion when the blaze broke out on 25 July.

However, a Lithuanian man believed to have been staying at the hotel remained missing.

The remains have not yet been formally identified but officers from Dyfed-Powys Police have informed the family of the missing man.

The coroner has also been told and a post-mortem examination is due to be carried out in due course.

A crane was brought in to help fire investigators gain access to the building due to safety concerns.

Last month, 30-year-old Damion Harris, from Llanbadarn, Aberystwyth, was remanded in custody at Swansea Crown Court charged with arson with intent to endanger life.
