In response to today’s serious incident in Ammanford, Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn has released a statement expressing his concerns, noting that his thoughts are with all that have been affected by the incident, highlighting the support that is available from our Victim Support Services – Goleudy.

Mr Llywelyn said: “I am deeply shocked by the distressing incident that took place earlier today at Ysgol Dyffryn Aman, Rhydaman. My thoughts go out to all those affected, including the pupils, teachers, and staff who were involved or witnessed this terrifying ordeal. Our thoughts are also with the families and friends of those injured.

“I want to commend those at the scene that ensured that the situation was brought under control and the emergency services who attended to safeguard the scene and reassure the public.


“I have been in constant contact with the Chief Constable and am being updated on the progress of the investigation. The priority now is to support the school community and ensure that those affected receive the care and assistance they need.

“Support is available via our victim support service, Goleudy.

“Goleudy is a free and confidential support service for anyone affected by crime and anti-social behaviour, regardless of whether they have reported it to the police or have a crime reference. The service offers personalised, emotional and practical support to help families and witnesses survive crime and to cope and recover from the impact.

“The service does not support children and young people directly but can assist via consent through a parent or guardian to enable the family to receive the support required. Goleudy can also refer onto specialist services where a need is identified.

“The service is available via self-referral by calling 0300 1232996.

“I would encourage you to share the above details with anyone affected by today’s incident and encourage them to seek support if required.

“I want to assure the public that the police investigation is ongoing, and that Officers and staff will work tirelessly to understand the circumstances surrounding this incident.

“I urge anyone with information that may assist the investigation to come forward and contact the police.

“Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this incident.”
