'Plan ahead' Wales v France rugby train travel warning

People travelling to the capital to watch Wales take on France on Friday are being told to plan ahead.

Cardiff Central railway station expects more than 40,000 rugby fans to travel by train, and said people should arrive at least three hours before kick off.

A queuing system will be in place after the game, similar to during the Rugby World Cup - as can be seen in this time-lapse video from Arriva Trains Wales.

The company said it would provide an extra 10,000 seating capacity to cater for increased demand but services into Cardiff were still likely to be busy.
