Nato summit: Cardiff security 'causing chaos'

People are being urged to use public transport to get into Cardiff city centre after complaints security ahead of the Newport Nato summit is causing "absolute chaos".

Some 12 miles (20km) of fencing is being erected in Cardiff and Newport for the summit on 4 and 5 September.

It protects key routes into venues where the world leaders will be hosted, including Cardiff Castle.

Bus lanes have been closed and drivers directed to long diversions.

Taxi driver Mike told BBC Wales reporter Paul Heaney the closures were causing "chaos" and lengthening journey times. But coffee shop owner Rhys was hoping for more custom, once Nato delegates started to arrive.
