Major incident’ at Ammanford school as Police and air ambulance rush to the scene

DYFED POWYS POLICE has said it is dealing with an incident at a west Wales school.

There has been a serious incident at Amman Valley School, Carmarthenshire, where police have confirmed that three people have been injured and are receiving treatment from medical professionals.

The school is in lockdown and multiple air ambulances have been sent.

Police at the scene said in the last few moments that one person has been arrested and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident.

Emergency services remain at scene and the school has been closed while investigations continue.

Police released a statement saying: “We are working closely with the school and Carmarthenshire County Council.

“We are aware that there is footage of the incident currently circulating on social media. We would ask that this is removed to avoid contempt of court and distress to those affected.

“We would ask the people do not speculate while there is a police investigation ongoing.”

Of the two air ambulances have arrived at the school, one is reportedly being sent to the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff, while another remains on school grounds.

Responding to reports of a stabbing at Ysgol Dyffryn Amman in Ammanford, Carmarthenshire, Andrew RT Davies MS, Leader of the Welsh Conservatives, said: “The reports emerging from Ysgol Dyffryn Amman are extremely concerning.

“Schools should be a place of safety, learning and discovery. It is deeply sad and distressing that today teachers and pupils have had that safety shattered by a violent incident.

“My thoughts are with all staff and pupils at the school, and we thank the emergency services for their work.”
