The force, along with crews from Mid and West Fire, and the Welsh Ambulance Service were called to BOC Gas & Gear, Margam, at about 14:40 BST.

One person was treated for shock and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has been informed.

A HSE spokesman said they were "aware and making initial enquiries".
