A 27-year-old man has been arrested after the death of a 76-year-old man in Cimla area of Neath.

The man remains in custody.

South Wales Police were called to the property in Lime Grove at 9:16pm on Thursday evening following reports of a disturbance.

Officers are calling for any witnesses and have warned residents of an 'increased police presence' in the area:

A murder investigation has been instigated and a major incident room has been set up.

The investigation is very much in its early stages, however I am appealing for witnesses to come forward who may have seen or heard anything in and around the Lime Grove area of Cimla yesterday evening, especially between 7pm and 9.30pm. There will be an increased police presence in the area and I would like both to reassure and thank the local community for their assistance to date.

– Detective Chief Inspector Darren George

A cordon remains in place as the investigation continues.
