Port Talbot residents shock as emergency services descend on Verdi Road

POLICE and the ambulance service have been attending an incident at Verdi Road in Sandfields on Tuesday (Feb 11).

Bystanders reported seeing a large number of emergency services vehicles arriving at a property on the road late on Tuesday evening.

Photographs were posted on Facebook showing the emergency services and people wearing white protective clothing outside a property on the road.

One bystander who did not wish to be named said that a lot of people in the area were worried that it might have something to do with the Coronavirus.

The bystander told us: “A man arrived home from Singapore and hadn’t been seen for a few days. There was a call made and just as precaution  men in white suits went into the home. I believe he had had a stroke or a heart attack.”

I believe it was an over reaction and it scared a lot of people in Port Talbot.”

We have contacted the emergency services for a comment.
