Former Sterophonics drummer Stuart Cable has been found dead.

Cable, 40, was found at his home in Aberdare by police this morning at 05:30am. His death comes just two days after his former band played a homecoming show at Cardiff City FC Stadium..

His mother Mable has told "Stuart has travelled all over the world with the band and I have worried myself silly. He is now settled down and then this has happens. It has not sunk in yet."

Cable was sacked from the Stereophonics in 2003 and has since presented a show on BBC Wales and formed new band, Killing for Company.

The cause of death has been undetermined at this stage and no foul play has been suspected.
