Neighbour describes "terrifying" scene at Llanelli incident

A woman who lives next door to the house raided by armed police in Llanelli described the scene as she arrived home from work. Siobhan Thomas, who lives on Maes Yr Haf, was greeted by the sight of armed police.

"I came home from work at about half past four and I could see that there were loads of armed policemen outside my front door."

It's been absolutely terrifying. This has been completely out of the blue. It's always been just families living in this area. So to come home and see a lot of armed policemen is absolutely out of character for the area."

Police investigation to be launched into Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire councils

A police investigation is being launched into whether any criminal offences were committed by Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire councils in their handling of tax payers money.

In January, the Wales Audit Office published three reports, which found that the councils had acted unlawfully when they used tax payers money and allowed senior officers to avoid potential tax repayments.

Dyfed-Powys Police has now concluded that the matter should be investigated by police.

The force has decided that it is a matter which should be investigated in the public interest by the police, to ascertain whether or not any criminal offences have taken place.

Due to the close working relationships and partnership arrangements that exist between Dyfed-Powys Police and both local authorities, it is not appropriate for the force to carry out the enquiry. As such the matter has been referred to Gloucestershire Constabulary who will undertake the investigation.
