Hundreds of residents around the M4 in Newport who face having their homes demolished are due to attend a public meeting this evening. Up to 300 homes could be demolished in order to widen the motorway near the Brynglas Tunnels.
Under a Welsh Government consultation, there are four proposals on the table. The fourth proposal, building two new tunnels at Brynglas has proved the most controversial. The public meeting will be held at Brynglas House at 6pm this evening.

The Welsh Government has launched a public consultation on plans to tackle congestion on a stretch of the M4.
Options include widening the motorway, to developing new tunnels at the site of the existing Brynglas tunnels, where traffic is currently down to two lanes in each direction
The Minister with responsibility for Transport Carl Sargeant said " Improving access to our schools, hospitals and workplaces is essential if we are to improve efficiency and productivity and in turn make us more competitive."
Environmental groups have hit out at the plans. Sustrans Cymru have called more investment in "alternatives" to people using their cars instead.
