Gorseinon homes evacuated and man arrested in incident

36 year-old arrested for threats to cause damage by arson

A Gorseinon Road was closed and properties evacuated yesterday afternoon as police officers and the fire service attended a house there.

A man was arrested.

South Wales Police and the fire service were called to the scene after concerns were reported about the occupant of a property on Gower View Road, who refused to leave the property.

Due to concerns for their safety a number of neighbours were evacuated and the road was closed.

At around 7pm a 36-year-old man was arrested for threats to cause damage by arson.

The road has now re-opened and police say they would like to thank the public for their patience during the incident.
