Former Stereophonics drummer Stuart Cable has been found dead, police have confirmed.

Cable, 40, was found in his Aberdare home this morning (June 7) at 5:30am (BST).

South Wales Police confirmed the sudden death of a 40 year-old man, and his mother Mable also announced the news.

She told Walesonline.co.uk: "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 happened. It has not sunk in yet."

His brother Paul also released a statement. "The family has no further comment to make at this stage," he said. "It is in the hands of the police."

A cause of death has not yet been determined, though there are understood to be no suspicious circumstances involved at this stage.

The drummer was sacked from Stereophonics in 2003, and following his departure he went on to have a career in TV, radio and has hosted awards ceremonies.

The band's frontman Kelly Jones has paid tribute to the drummer, explaining the pair had patched up their differences a long time ago and were due to meet up soon.

Fellow Welshmen Manic Street Preachers were among those to pay tribute to Stuart Cable today, declaring their friend was a "gigantic personality".
