Excellent results good work!

Brilliant job.

Liam Svensen

Brilliant news

Our system is so corrupt! So these guys get 4/5 years for drugs but apparently its decent to hand out a 3 year sentence to people who TAKE a life? Where's the sense in that....

That's what we like to see positive results well done all those involved.

Jacob Caluan

Congratulationsthats that's one up for the police x

Ah yes............let's give South Wales Police a round of applause for getting the bottom of the pile......who were already replaced before they got nicked. A pat on the back heading your way when you get the big guns. #liveinhope :/ This haul does not make a difference :( Not impressed.

I would urge anyone who suspects a child may be at risk of sexual exploitation not just within the late night economy but in general to report it to us so we can act. You can do so by calling us on 101 or if you suspect a child is in immediate danger you should call 999.”What is child sexual exploitation (CSE)?• CSE is any form of sexual activity with a child • It can happen to any child up to the age of 18 • It involves some sort of exchange i.e. alcohol, drugs, affections and gifts.
