There's been a royal in our midst today, as Prince Edward visited Blaenau Gwent . He was there to officially open the Diamond Jubilee Square in Abertillery - part of the wider regeneration of the town.
It's just one of the examples of how money from Europe is being invested here, as Megan Boot reports.
Police are appealing for information after a robbery by a man holding what is believe to be a gun at a shop in Abertillery.
Officers were called to the Lucky Superstore on Cwm Cottage Road at around 8pm on Wednesday night.
Gwent Police say that the shopkeeper was threatened verbally by the man saying he had a gun and he wanted her to open the till. He then pointed what appeared to be a gun at her.
Cash, a handbag and 2 mobile phones were taken in the raid.
The man is described as being 6 feet tall and strongly built. He had a local accent which was described as being soft and not matching his size. He was wearing a grey hooded top that had lime green laces and front pocket, black shell type tracksuit bottoms and white trainers. He also had a black woollen scarf pulled up over the lower part of his face and was wearing black woollen gloves.
