A man and woman have been arrested after armed police were called to an incident in Llanelli last night.

A specialist negotiator was brought in to deal with a man threatening to harm himself and a woman with a knife at a property in Cae Glas, Felinfoel.

The man surrendered early this morning and was arrested for an outstanding warrant. A woman was arrested for obstructing officers.

Chief Inspector Stuart Bell said: “Officers were deployed immediately, and to ensure the safety of everyone at the scene firearms officers were also deployed. A specialist negotiator worked with the man for a number of hours, bringing the incident to a close at about 1.45am.
