Police respond to sudden death of man at Llanelli Job Centre

POLICE in Llanelli responded to a report of the sudden death of a 65-year-old man at Llanelli Job Centre on Friday, (Nov 15).

There are no suspicious circumstances. Next of kin and HM Coroner have been informed.

Bystanders reported seeing emergency vehicles including an air ambulance vehicle outside the Job Centre.

One bystander told us that the Job Centre was quickly closed and people were ushered outside while the emergency services carried out their roles.

A London based magazine has focused on highlighting that the man collapsed while waiting for an appointment to discuss Jobseeker’s Allowance after being declared fit for work earlier this year.

An ambulance spokesman said: ‘We were called on Friday November 15 at approximately 9.33am to reports of a person needing urgent medical attention on Stepney Street in central Llanelli. ‘We responded with one rapid response vehicle, one specialised medical vehicle and one emergency ambulance.’
