Police warning ahead of Halloween celebrations

As thousands of people across Wales mark Halloween tonight police are warning of a rise in anti-social behaviour associated with the event.

They say they're often concerned for older and vulnerable people after dark.

They're urging those out celebrating to think carefully before knocking on doors to trick or treat.

Reports often include: anti-social behaviour from groups of young people, throwing eggs and flour at houses and passing cars and excessive drinking and rowdiness which can all prove very intimidating, especially to the elderly and vulnerable.

Forgotten Dylan Thomas poem revived at London pub

A forgotten poem written by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas has been unveiled for the first time in 73 years after a university professor came across it by chance.

Dylan Thomas died at the age of 39 in 1953

A Dream Of Winter was recited by actor Celyn Jones, who played Thomas in the film Set Fire To The Stars, at The Wheatsheaf in London's Fitzrovia, where the late poet met his soon-to-be wife Caitlin Macnamara in 1936.

It was found by Swansea University Professor John Goodby, who came across the poem in a 1942 copy of the magazine Lilliput last year.

"I thought it was extraordinary. I was bowled over by it because it is a beautiful poem with beautiful images around it."

A painting inspired by the poem by artist Dan Llwelyn Hall, who painted a portrait of the Queen in 2013, was also revealed to the exclusive audience of Dylan Thomas fans.

The poem has been published in the latest edition of poetry magazine Nation Review and will be re-published in an anthology edited by Prof Goodby in May.

Dylan Thomas died in 1953 aged 39. The event took place three days after what would have been his 101st birthday.
