In its heyday, it drew hundreds of thousands of people through its gates, but in recent years Barry Island Pleasure Park has fallen into disrepair.

A team of 25 workers are now working around the clock to restore part of the park in time for this Easter weekend where a funfair will be held.

The Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) is forecasting air pollution for the whole of Wales.

High pressure and light winds are being blamed.

It says there will be 'moderate' levels of pollution for most of Wales with parts of the North East and Mid Wales affected by 'high' levels.

It's also issued health advice for adults and children with lung problems and adults with heart problems.

Air pollution levels are expected to fall tomorrow and clear by Saturday.
