A man has died and two others were taken to hospital following an incident at a south Wales beauty spot.

Emergency services were called to Three Cliffs Bay in Gower, Swansea, at around 2pm yesterday amid reports of a person struggling in the water.

An air ambulance was called to the scene, and a 42-year-old man was taken to the city's Morriston Hospital - where he was later pronounced dead.

Two other people were also sent to the same A&E with non-life threatening injuries.

South Wales Police confirmed it was investigating the incident at Three Cliffs Bay and appealing for witnesses.

Anyone with information is asked to call police via the 101 number or 01656 655555.
