Defender Danny Gabbidon is set to return to Cardiff City nearly a decade after leaving the club.

Gabbidon is due to sign a contract until the end of the season with an option to join the coaching set up at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The 35 year-old has trained with the Bluebirds this summer after being released by Crystal Palace.

Gabbidon made over 200 appearances for the south Wales club before joining West Ham in 2005.

Parents and pupils criticise NATO school closures

Parents and pupils across South Wales have spoken of their frustration at school closures later this week due to the NATO summit in Newport.

More than 160 schools will be closed, or open for reduced hours, between Wednesday and Friday - primarily due to concerns over whether staff will be able to travel in.

Parents and pupils, many of them returning to school today after the summer holidays, say being forced to have more days off will disrupt learning, and make it difficult for many to balance work and the school run.

Tom Sheldrick reports:


Around 160 schools affected by NATO summit

More than 160 schools will be closed or operate reduced opening hours during the week of the NATO summit.

The majority of schools in Newport will be closed during the summit, with schools in Torfaen, Monmouthshire and Cardiff opting for reduced opening hours.

Almost all of the schools in the Vale of Glamorgan will open with reduced hours between Wednesday and Friday.
