Natural Resources Wales have said: “Our officers have been on site at the river Afon Clywedog following a pollution incident last night that has killed a significant number of fish.

“They attended the site at 11pm and initially found about 50 dead fish in a 500m stretch, but the river looked clear and they were unable to locate the pollution source.”
