Is there a parking crisis in the Brecon Beacons?

The National Trust says it's working hard to progress plans to increase the number of parking spaces at Storey Arms in the Brecon Beacons.

The area's popular with walkers climbing the summit of Pen y Fan on weekends.

But with limited car parking provision, more and more visitors are leaving their vehicles on the side of the main A470.

Watch the report from Hannah Thomas below:

Police say it's becoming a hazardous situation.

The proposals would see the number of local car parking spaces increase from 50 to 266.

The Wales tree of the year, called Survival at the cutting edge, has been entered into the European version of the competition.

The oak tree was originally in the paddock which was later to become the National Botanic Garden of Wales.

Aged 14, Terry Treharne earned money to clear the land by scythe until he developed excruciating pain in his elbow and had to stop so the tree was saved.

The European contest doesn't focus on beauty, size or age but on the tree's story and its connection to people.
