we are back with the late news at 10:00.

:00:00.:00:16.

Cardiff prepares for one of the world's biggest sporting events.

:00:17.:00:21.

Organisers of the Champions League final insist the city can cope.

:00:22.:00:26.

The Welsh surgeon who saved countless lives in Syria

:00:27.:00:28.

tells the Hay Festival of the "evil" he witnessed.

:00:29.:00:33.

And specialist language lessons for the refugee doctors and dentists

:00:34.:00:37.

Cardiff can cope with the 170,000 people

:00:38.:00:48.

expected to come into the city for the Champions League final.

:00:49.:00:50.

That's according to organisers, who say the capital will be

:00:51.:00:55.

at capacity when Juventus play Real Madrid on Saturday.

:00:56.:00:59.

It's taken almost a thousand days to plan for 170,000 people

:01:00.:01:07.

to arrive, enjoy and crucially leave the Welsh capital.

:01:08.:01:11.

It means providing extra accommodation, transport

:01:12.:01:16.

and security in one of the smallest cities to ever host

:01:17.:01:19.

When you look at cities the size of London and Berlin,

:01:20.:01:24.

lots of big footprints, and we have pretty much taken every

:01:25.:01:27.

So the size has been a challenge but it's also been an advantage

:01:28.:01:32.

because when people do come, they can walk around fairly easily

:01:33.:01:34.

and we think that will put Cardiff on the map and make it different

:01:35.:01:38.

South Wales Police say they've never planned for anything like this.

:01:39.:01:44.

As part of a huge security operation there will be road closures

:01:45.:01:47.

and disruption for both businesses and residents.

:01:48.:01:51.

But organisers say the city is used to hosting major sporting events

:01:52.:01:54.

and can deal with large crowds flooding the streets.

:01:55.:01:58.

In 2005 for the Grand Slam game they said there

:01:59.:02:01.

were about 250,000 people in the city.

:02:02.:02:03.

There will be the festival, there will be two fan meeting

:02:04.:02:08.

points each for the teens, lots of bars in Cardiff

:02:09.:02:10.

So we are confident the city can absorb that number.

:02:11.:02:14.

Alongside the final there is a four-day Champions League Festival

:02:15.:02:16.

One of the highlights will be a legends match where the world's

:02:17.:02:22.

best former footballers will play on this floating pitch.

:02:23.:02:24.

But there won't be an opportunity for fans to watch Juventus take

:02:25.:02:28.

The Festival shuts hours before the final kicks off.

:02:29.:02:34.

We would have loved to have been able to put on a public screening

:02:35.:02:37.

but the problem we face is the city is already going to be at capacity

:02:38.:02:40.

and if we put a free of charge public screening on in the city,

:02:41.:02:44.

particularly now that it's Real Madrid and Gareth Bale,

:02:45.:02:46.

we would have so many people coming in from the local areas the city

:02:47.:02:49.

Is Cardiff going to be maxed out anyway?

:02:50.:02:54.

It's not very often that Real Madrid and Juventus play in Cardiff.

:02:55.:02:58.

If you are a local person and you like sport we expect

:02:59.:03:01.

The best footballers in the world are on our doorstep and these

:03:02.:03:07.

opportunities don't come around very often.

:03:08.:03:09.

So people shouldn't be complacent and think we'll see them next time.

:03:10.:03:11.

Who knows, there may not be a next time.

:03:12.:03:14.

Fire crews in Swansea hope to bring a large blaze at a recycling unit

:03:15.:03:21.

in Fforestfach under control this evening.

:03:22.:03:23.

There were more than 70 firefighters tackling the fire earlier.

:03:24.:03:27.

Thick smoke affected some train services

:03:28.:03:30.

I could hear the bangs and that but I obviously

:03:31.:03:39.

It was dark then so you couldn't see smoke but you could smell it.

:03:40.:03:46.

Armed police officers are on duty at the Urdd National Eisteddfod

:03:47.:03:49.

The increased security measures are in response to last week's

:03:50.:03:54.

Extra security officers are also conducting bag searches.

:03:55.:03:59.

It's expected over 100,000 visitors and competitors will attend

:04:00.:04:02.

the Welsh language youth festival this week.

:04:03.:04:05.

A Welsh surgeon who saved countless lives in Syria

:04:06.:04:07.

has been recalling the "evil" acts he's witnessed there.

:04:08.:04:09.

has been operating in conflict zones for more than 20 years.

:04:10.:04:15.

He's been speaking to Huw Thomas at the Hay Festival,

:04:16.:04:17.

where he delivered the BBC's annual Patrick Hannan Lecture.

:04:18.:04:27.

In Syria the mission for David Nott is professional and personal. The

:04:28.:04:35.

victims, so often the innocent and the young. An air strike killed this

:04:36.:04:42.

little girl 's parents. He worked hard to save her life. Oh my

:04:43.:04:48.

goodness me. Later he was reunited with their butt so many others have

:04:49.:04:52.

died including Syrian doctors who worked with him. In his lecture this

:04:53.:04:56.

evening he condemned the bombing of hospitals and the targeting of

:04:57.:05:01.

civilians. What we are seeing now is evil because of sin is something you

:05:02.:05:06.

can be a morsel about that evil is something you perpetrate and you

:05:07.:05:11.

know it's wrong and you continue to do it. That is the difference

:05:12.:05:16.

between sin and evil. David Nott has trained local doctors and works

:05:17.:05:19.

tirelessly to promote the plight of the people he has tried to help. At

:05:20.:05:23.

the attack in Manchester has brought it home and the techniques he has

:05:24.:05:30.

used on the battlefield have been employed in British hospitals. There

:05:31.:05:35.

are core skills which all the surgeons have. Nowadays of course we

:05:36.:05:44.

never saw the effects of bomb blasts in this country before and now we're

:05:45.:05:48.

adding that to our training regime and a teaching surgeons how to deal

:05:49.:05:53.

with horrific ones. He told me he will return to Syria and wherever

:05:54.:06:03.

else his skills are needed. To help others, the innocent victims of the

:06:04.:06:06.

world's cruellest conflicts. You can hear David Nott's

:06:07.:06:09.

Patrick Hannan lecture A course run by a Cardiff based

:06:10.:06:10.

charity is coaching doctors and dentists who are refugees

:06:11.:06:16.

and asylum seekers through specialist English exams so they can

:06:17.:06:18.

be employed by the NHS here. It's thought the programme

:06:19.:06:22.

by 'Displaced People in Action' has saved the health service ?20 million

:06:23.:06:26.

across the UK. It's just a training room

:06:27.:06:30.

in Cardiff Bay but through these doors have come children's doctors,

:06:31.:06:36.

brain surgeons, specialists, talented medical

:06:37.:06:41.

staff key to the NHS. What brings these people together

:06:42.:06:45.

is that they are all Professionals in their own country

:06:46.:06:49.

determined to qualify To do that they will be tested

:06:50.:06:54.

on their reading, writing, Not an easy feat when you are

:06:55.:07:00.

talking about complex science. One of them was in Aleppo just

:07:01.:07:06.

a month ago having graduated Another left Libya in 2014

:07:07.:07:09.

and wants to continue I'm working for my

:07:10.:07:14.

children's future. It's different to have a mum

:07:15.:07:22.

who just stays at home and does the cooking and prepares

:07:23.:07:25.

everything for them. I want them to see their mum

:07:26.:07:26.

fighting to get to her target. So I think I have to put some work

:07:27.:07:33.

into this to achieve my This pioneering scheme was set up

:07:34.:07:42.

by Displaced People In Action alongside the body responsible

:07:43.:07:52.

for training doctors here and with initial funding

:07:53.:07:54.

from the Welsh Government, 87 doctors have now been registered

:07:55.:07:57.

with the General medical Council Of those, 12 are GPs,

:07:58.:08:01.

two are consultants and 67 There are shortages in certain

:08:02.:08:08.

specialties and if you think that we can have a qualified doctor

:08:09.:08:14.

through the scheme within sometimes one to two years at absolutely

:08:15.:08:18.

minimal cost, whereas to put somebody through medical school

:08:19.:08:22.

and training you are looking at about a quarter of a million

:08:23.:08:26.

pounds, that is a huge difference. This doctor from Kuwait came

:08:27.:08:30.

to the UK seeking asylum in 2014. Now doing a placement

:08:31.:08:33.

in psychiatrics in Cardiff, he came here because of what the Welsh

:08:34.:08:37.

scheme could offer. After passing all the exams

:08:38.:08:43.

and getting registered it's very Also it's very difficult to find

:08:44.:08:45.

the references required for the job. So by providing this opportunity

:08:46.:08:51.

for me and other refugee doctors we were able to find references,

:08:52.:08:54.

we were able to refresh our skills These doctors can use their own

:08:55.:08:58.

language and culture to benefit patients and it also means they can

:08:59.:09:09.

become professionals again Cricket and Glamorgan

:09:10.:09:12.

have secured their first County Championship win

:09:13.:09:19.

of the season in dramatic fashion. They've beaten Durham

:09:20.:09:22.

by three wickets with just three balls

:09:23.:09:25.

to spare at St Helen's in Swansea. The visitors declared

:09:26.:09:27.

on 276 for seven, but Nick Selman proved

:09:28.:09:30.

to be the hero, helping Glamorgan reach the target

:09:31.:09:33.

with an unbeaten 116, which included two sixes

:09:34.:09:35.

in the last over. Let's get the weather forecast now.

:09:36.:09:37.

Here's Behnaz. It has been a pretty cloudy bank

:09:38.:09:46.

:10:00.:10:05.

nice as the weather last week. Tonight we have these showers which

Tomorrow we have this weather front that will bring with it a bit of

rain. I pressure is building from the South and that will settle

:10:28.:10:29.

things down. First thing tomorrow the odd shower, some sunshine and

:10:30.:10:34.

then a spell of light rain making its way from the West and gradually

:10:35.:10:39.
