Cardiff prepares for one of the world's biggest sporting events.
Organisers of the Champions League final insist the city can cope.
The Welsh surgeon who saved countless lives in Syria
tells the Hay Festival of the "evil" he witnessed.
And specialist language lessons for the refugee doctors and dentists
Cardiff can cope with the 170,000 people
expected to come into the city for the Champions League final.
That's according to organisers, who say the capital will be
at capacity when Juventus play Real Madrid on Saturday.
It's taken almost a thousand days to plan for 170,000 people
to arrive, enjoy and crucially leave the Welsh capital.
It means providing extra accommodation, transport
and security in one of the smallest cities to ever host
When you look at cities the size of London and Berlin,
lots of big footprints, and we have pretty much taken every
So the size has been a challenge but it's also been an advantage
because when people do come, they can walk around fairly easily
and we think that will put Cardiff on the map and make it different
South Wales Police say they've never planned for anything like this.
As part of a huge security operation there will be road closures
and disruption for both businesses and residents.
But organisers say the city is used to hosting major sporting events
and can deal with large crowds flooding the streets.
In 2005 for the Grand Slam game they said there
were about 250,000 people in the city.
There will be the festival, there will be two fan meeting
points each for the teens, lots of bars in Cardiff
So we are confident the city can absorb that number.
Alongside the final there is a four-day Champions League Festival
One of the highlights will be a legends match where the world's
best former footballers will play on this floating pitch.
But there won't be an opportunity for fans to watch Juventus take
The Festival shuts hours before the final kicks off.
We would have loved to have been able to put on a public screening
but the problem we face is the city is already going to be at capacity
and if we put a free of charge public screening on in the city,
particularly now that it's Real Madrid and Gareth Bale,
we would have so many people coming in from the local areas the city
Is Cardiff going to be maxed out anyway?
It's not very often that Real Madrid and Juventus play in Cardiff.
If you are a local person and you like sport we expect
The best footballers in the world are on our doorstep and these
opportunities don't come around very often.
So people shouldn't be complacent and think we'll see them next time.
Who knows, there may not be a next time.
Fire crews in Swansea hope to bring a large blaze at a recycling unit
in Fforestfach under control this evening.
There were more than 70 firefighters tackling the fire earlier.
Thick smoke affected some train services
I could hear the bangs and that but I obviously
It was dark then so you couldn't see smoke but you could smell it.
Armed police officers are on duty at the Urdd National Eisteddfod
The increased security measures are in response to last week's
Extra security officers are also conducting bag searches.
It's expected over 100,000 visitors and competitors will attend
the Welsh language youth festival this week.
A Welsh surgeon who saved countless lives in Syria
has been recalling the "evil" acts he's witnessed there.
has been operating in conflict zones for more than 20 years.
He's been speaking to Huw Thomas at the Hay Festival,
where he delivered the BBC's annual Patrick Hannan Lecture.
In Syria the mission for David Nott is professional and personal. The
victims, so often the innocent and the young. An air strike killed this
little girl 's parents. He worked hard to save her life. Oh my
goodness me. Later he was reunited with their butt so many others have
died including Syrian doctors who worked with him. In his lecture this
evening he condemned the bombing of hospitals and the targeting of
civilians. What we are seeing now is evil because of sin is something you
can be a morsel about that evil is something you perpetrate and you
know it's wrong and you continue to do it. That is the difference
between sin and evil. David Nott has trained local doctors and works
tirelessly to promote the plight of the people he has tried to help. At
the attack in Manchester has brought it home and the techniques he has
used on the battlefield have been employed in British hospitals. There
are core skills which all the surgeons have. Nowadays of course we
never saw the effects of bomb blasts in this country before and now we're
adding that to our training regime and a teaching surgeons how to deal
with horrific ones. He told me he will return to Syria and wherever
else his skills are needed. To help others, the innocent victims of the
world's cruellest conflicts. You can hear David Nott's
Patrick Hannan lecture A course run by a Cardiff based
charity is coaching doctors and dentists who are refugees
and asylum seekers through specialist English exams so they can
be employed by the NHS here. It's thought the programme
by 'Displaced People in Action' has saved the health service ?20 million
across the UK. It's just a training room
in Cardiff Bay but through these doors have come children's doctors,
brain surgeons, specialists, talented medical
staff key to the NHS. What brings these people together
is that they are all Professionals in their own country
determined to qualify To do that they will be tested
on their reading, writing, Not an easy feat when you are
talking about complex science. One of them was in Aleppo just
a month ago having graduated Another left Libya in 2014
and wants to continue I'm working for my
children's future. It's different to have a mum
who just stays at home and does the cooking and prepares
everything for them. I want them to see their mum
fighting to get to her target. So I think I have to put some work
into this to achieve my This pioneering scheme was set up
by Displaced People In Action alongside the body responsible
for training doctors here and with initial funding
from the Welsh Government, 87 doctors have now been registered
with the General medical Council Of those, 12 are GPs,
two are consultants and 67 There are shortages in certain
specialties and if you think that we can have a qualified doctor
through the scheme within sometimes one to two years at absolutely
minimal cost, whereas to put somebody through medical school
and training you are looking at about a quarter of a million
pounds, that is a huge difference. This doctor from Kuwait came
to the UK seeking asylum in 2014. Now doing a placement
in psychiatrics in Cardiff, he came here because of what the Welsh
scheme could offer. After passing all the exams
and getting registered it's very Also it's very difficult to find
the references required for the job. So by providing this opportunity
for me and other refugee doctors we were able to find references,
we were able to refresh our skills These doctors can use their own
language and culture to benefit patients and it also means they can
become professionals again Cricket and Glamorgan
have secured their first County Championship win
of the season in dramatic fashion. They've beaten Durham
by three wickets with just three balls
to spare at St Helen's in Swansea. The visitors declared
on 276 for seven, but Nick Selman proved
to be the hero, helping Glamorgan reach the target
with an unbeaten 116, which included two sixes
in the last over. Let's get the weather forecast now.
Here's Behnaz. It has been a pretty cloudy bank
holiday Monday. The weather will settle down towards the middle of
the week. Tonight we have a few showers which will clear the way and
to feel less humid. This was the satellite picture from earlier. We
did season breaks in the cloud with brighter spells but nowhere near as
nice as the weather last week. Tonight we have these showers which
will clear north eastwards. It will become driver time. Overnight a few
more showers coming in from the west. A lot of dry weather to look
forward to. Temperatures remaining in double figures for all of us.
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
things down. First thing tomorrow the odd shower, some sunshine and
then a spell of light rain making its way from the West and gradually
clearing by the afternoon. Temperatures tomorrow getting up to
17 or 18 Celsius. Tomorrow night, some evening sunshine for all of us
and we will see some clear skies. Mist and fog forming in the early
hours of Wednesday morning. Temperatures much fresher. The winds
are like. As we head into Wednesday high-pressure sitting comfortably
across the UK. That will settle our weather down. A lot of dry and
bright weather on Wednesday. We could see the odd isolated shower
along the coast in the south but the most of us it is sunny and dry with
temperatures getting up to about 19 Celsius.
Our next bulletin is at 10:30pm tonight.
From all of us on the programme, good evening.
