Safety concerns have been raised after reports shoppers were crossing a busy dual carriageway on foot to visit a new megastore in Merthyr Tydfil.

The council tweeted people risked a "serious road accident" and called on them to use a subway rather than risk the A470 to get to Trago Mills.

The £65m store opened on Saturday after taking 18 months to build.

The council also said traffic has been "backing up" nearby and advised drivers to use other routes if possible.
