Police shot a British man who was confronted trying to eat the body parts of a woman in his hotel room, at South Wales, on Thursday.

Matthew Williams, 34, was allegedly eating his victim’s eyeball when security staff burst in on the shocking attack. The victim has been identified as Cerys Yemm, 22, a shop worker and William’s girlfriend.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and a murder investigation has been opened.
