A man has been charged with the murder of five-year-old Logan Mwangi in South Wales.

Logan, who was also known as Logan Williamson, from Sarn in Bridgend, was found dead in the Ogmore River near Pandy Park in the early hours of Saturday morning.

South Wales Police have charged John Cole, 39, of Sarn, Bridgend, with murder.

Cole is also charged with perverting the course of justice, as are Angharad Williamson, 30, from Sarn, and a 13-year-old boy who cannot be identified due to his age.

All three are in police custody and will appear before magistrates in Cardiff on Thursday.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Chief Inspector Mark O’Shea, said: “This is a very harrowing case for all involved and I extend my deepest sympathies to Logan’s family and friends.

“This remains an extensive and sensitive investigation by the Major Crime Investigation Team and I am grateful to the local community for its support and understanding while we have continued to gather evidence across several scenes.
