Newport Road was closed in both directions near its junction with Partridge Road due to concerns for the safety of a woman in the area.

South Wales Police said the individual has since been detained and is being given "appropriate medical help".

Officers were called the the scene at about 13:00 BST, leading to lengthy traffic queues.
