A man found dead in a Pembrokeshire lake has been named as Robert Mansfield, who had just celebrated his 18th birthday the day before he died.

Mr Mansfield's body was found in Mill Pond, Pembroke, at 02:40 BST on Monday.

His family said he spent the night before celebrating with family and friends. In a statement, they called him a "kind and caring lad".
