Further stop and search powers have been enacted in Cardiff for the second time this week.

A Section 60 notice is now in effect in an area covering Rumney, Llanrumney, St Mellons, Old St Mellons and Trowbridge. It was put into force after police received information following a number of incidents "where violence has been threatened or used".

The notice came into effect at 2.30pm today and will end at 2.30pm on Sunday, August 1. It gives officers additional powers to stop and search any pedestrian, or anything carried by them for offensive weapons or dangerous instruments without good reason, or to stop and search any vehicle, its driver and any passenger, for offensive weapons or dangerous instruments.
