Gorseinon residents allowed to return home as ‘bomb disposal unit’ gives all clear

Residents evacuated from their homes as a precautionary measure due to a police incident have now been allowed to return to their properties.

Armed police were deployed alongside local units to Trinity Street, Gorseinon, following reports of a domestic incident.

A 41-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of possessing a prohibited weapon. The man was also arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage.

Both are currently in custody. 

Bomb disposal units were also deployed to the scene as a precautionary measure to assist in a search of an address. 

A cordon to prevent entry to the street has now been lifted. 

The public – and in particular local residents temporarily displaced from their homes – are thanked for their cooperation and patience during the incident, allowing officers to ensure their safety.
