Monday 17th Dec 2018


Detectives are no longer treating the death of a man at a property in Bryn Bevan, Bryn Glas, Newport, as suspicious.

Emergency services were called to the address at approximately 3am on Sunday, 2nd December, to a report that a man was unresponsive. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Officers initially launched a murder investigation, arresting a 21 year old man from the Bryn Glas area on suspicion of murder. However, extensive enquiries have resulted in him being released with no further action, and the death is now not being treated as suspicious.

Gwent Police will be sharing all information with the Coroner.

We can now confirm the identity of the deceased as Gareth Williams, aged 56, from Bryn Bevan, Bryn Glas, Newport.

We would request that media respect the privacy of Mr Williams' family at this difficult time.
