Officers have cordoned off the Randweg for several hours while they investigated the spot. A barrier had been erected near the old Gardeners Arms pub, traffic stopped to drive along the road, while a number of police vehicles were parked close to the intersection with Wheler Street.

The cordon was lifted before 4 p.m. yesterday, but police remained on the scene after the road was reopened. The officers are continuing their investigation today, while the suspect is currently in custody.
