Swansea city council is expected to approved a security scheme for one of its estates which will cost £1 million, BBC Radio 4's Today programme reported this morning.

Uniformed security wardens are to be brought into Townhill estate, following complaints by residents of deteriorating conditions with car vandalism and break ins and properties having to be made into mini fortresses. In certain instances private detectives would be placed in residents' homes as witnesses.

Housing director of Swansea, Arnold Philips, says: 'The situation has been very difficult with severe harassment and criminal damage and even physical violence.'

The wardens will be on duty round the clock every day of the year, patrolling the estate with walkie talkies and if they come across trouble will contact police who will then take over.
