THREE armed response vehicles and a helicopter were called out to reports of a gunman in an Ammanford street.

But Dyfed-Powys Police have since revealed the call-out in the town on Tuesday night, initially thought to be a domestic incident involving a gunman, was "false."

A source told the Evening Post that three BMW 4x4 vehicles and a helicopter with a searchlight overhead were called to Talbot Road, in the town, on Tuesday evening.


But a statement issued by a Dyfed-Powys Police spokeswoman said: "We were responding to a domestic incident which turned out to be false."

They were unable to release details of the vehicles called to the site.

Ammanford councillor, Deian Harries, who lives on the street, was out at the time of the incident.

He said: "I was in a town council meeting at the time, and the police were with us.

"It came through on their radio that something was happening in Talbot Road, but we didn't know what was going on at the time."
