British Actress Stephanie Parker has been found dead in Wales two days after the series she appeared in had ended.

Parker played the role of Stacey Weaver in the BBC Wales show Belonging since she was 15 (she was 22 at the time of her death.) She has also appeared in Doc Martin, Doctors and on Casualty.

Police say there were no suspicious circumstances and that the death was being treated as suicide. Some reports suggest that Parker might have hung herself, although other reports say she was found on "open ground."

Parker lived in Pontypridd, Glamorgan, 10 miles from Bridgend, a Welsh town which has seen a spate of teenage suicides over recent years.
