Man is stabbed outside town shop

Police are appealing for help after a man was stabbed during an apparent argument near a shop in Merthyr Tydfil.

Officers said the incident happened at around 1815 GMT on Thursday by the Bryn Stores on Glasier Road.

The injured man is being treated for a number of stab wounds at the Prince Charles hospital, where his condition is stable.

A 20-year-old man is also being questioned by police in connection with the incident.


Approval for mental health unit

A new 16-bed low secure mental health hospital is due to open in Pembroke Dock in February, creating 100 jobs.

The town's council recommended to Pembrokeshire planners that approval be given to the 4.5m project which will treat patients round the clock.

Building work on the unit, which is located adjacent to South Pembrokeshire hospital, began a year ago.

Surehaven, who are developing the project, said the planning approval was "an important step".

A 68-year-old pedestrian who was involved in a collision with a car last week, has died.

Police are appealing for information on the incident, which happened on Hadfield Road, Cardiff on Tuesday, 13 January at around 1400 GMT.

A Renault Clio collided with the man near the junction of Bessemer Road, Leckwith. He was taken to hospital in Cardiff but died on Monday.

Anyone with information should contact police on 029 2063 3438.


Police warning over bogus calls

Police are warning people to be wary of a bogus phone scam where householders have been asked to pay unpaid telephone bills.

A number of incidents where people have been threatened with disconnection if card details are not given, have happened in the Swansea area.

South Wales Police are advising for anyone who receives a call to check with their service provider.

They should not disclose any banking or credit card details, said officers.
