Officials are puzzled after hundreds of dead fish were found in a river near Llansantffraid.

The discovery was made on Friday and initial tests over the weekend reveal no signs of pollution with the water appearing clear.

Environment body Natural Resources Wales said about 500 fish, including juvenile salmon and adult brown trout, were found in the River Cain.

More water samples and tests of the affected fish have been taken to try and establish the cause.

Jess Poole, of NRW, said it could take several years for fish populations in the river to recover.

Officers are already investigating the cause of a separate incident which killed about 100 fish on Anglesey.
