Two more people have been arrested in connection with a murder investigation in a suburb of Cardiff.

A 17-year-old girl and a 19-year-old man were detained by South Wales Police on Friday night after the discovery of a 32-year-old man's body in a woodland area of St Mellons on Thursday morning.

A 16-year old boy and 27-year-old man are already being kept in custody after earlier arrests.

Emergency services were called to the discovery of the man's body in the Brookfield Drive area on Thursday at 7.15am.

Detectives from South Wales Police believe the victim and the two men were known to each other, and are now looking to trace "other individuals" who they believe were involved in the incident.

Detective Superintendent Richard Jones said: "This is a murder investigation and we're urging anyone who was in the Brookfield Drive area on Thursday November 22 from 6.30am to 7.15am who may have witnessed the incident or has further information to come forward.

"Anyone with information can contact South Wales Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
