A manhunt for a sixth suspect in the murder of a 17-year-old boy has been launched by police.

Officers are combing the seaside town of Barry, South Wales, for Leon Symons, 21, who is wanted in connection with the killing of Harry Baker.

Since the teenager was found dead at the docklands less than a mile from the Gavin and Stacey set on Wednesday morning, detectives have charged four people and arrested another.  

Peter McCarthy, 36, Ryan Palmer, 47, Nathan Delafontaine, 32 and Raymond Thompson, 47, have all been charged.   

Now, detectives have ramped up their investigation by naming Cardiff man Symonds in a public appeal for information.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark O'Shea, said: '21-year-old Leon Symons is from Ely in Cardiff but is known to have contacts in Barry, Rumney and Rhoose.

'We have been making enquiries at properties and areas he is known to frequent and are now appealing to the public for help.

'We would ask him - or anyone who knows him - to please contact South Wales Police or their nearest police station.
