A large police presence remains in place in a village in South Wales this evening, after a major incident occurred at around midday today.

South Wales Police were called alongside other emergency services after reports of a serious incident at a property in Ynyswen, Treorchy in the Rhondda.

Surrounding streets were quickly cordoned off, with South Wales Police saying that further details of incident will be released in due course.

Members of the public have been told to avoid the area and to remain in their properties but local MP Chris Bryant said that Police now have the incident under control.
