A man has died after being pulled from a lake at a Newport golf club where he was working collecting balls.

Underwater cameras were used by fire crews at Peterstone Golf Club to find Gareth Pugh, 29, from Glynneath, Neath Port Talbot.

He was taken to Cardiff's University of Wales Hospital but later died.

Gwent Police and Newport council's environmental health department are trying to establish the circumstances surrounding his death.

A post mortem examination will take place next week.
