Pictures emerge from scene of mass police incident where people were urged to 'stay away'

Armed police descended on a Rhyl[1] street with officers urging people to stay away. Witnesses reported seeing police with guns arrive at Hen Afon Road[2] just before 5.30pm today. Residents were urged to avoid the street due to the “heavy police presence”.

North Wales Police tweeted: “Ongoing Police incident around Hen Afon Road Rhyl, with heavy police presence. Please avoid the area where possible. There is no cause for concern to local residents.”

An eye-witness told how police were guarding a house on the street with scenes of crime officers also spotted at the scene.
