A man has been arrested after armed police cordoned off part of a housing estate in Llanelli, Caramarthenshire for five hours.

Officers were called to the Brynhyfryd estate at about 0930BST on Friday.

Dyfed Powys Police said: "Armed officers were in the area in relation to investigations into a serious offence that had occurred earlier in the day at a different location."

The force thanked the public for their patience and cooperation.

"A man has now been arrested in connection with the above offence," said Inspector James Davies.

"There may have been some minimal disruption to some of the residents of Brynhyfryd and for that we'd like to apologise.

"However it was essential that we dealt with the incident in the safest possible way for everyone concerned."

At lunchtime, there was still a heavy police presence, including armed officers.

Residents were being allowed access but police blocked the main estate road, Pencoed.
