The President of the AA, Edmund King, has been telling ITV News about what you can expect on the roads this Christmas:
South Wales Police have offered these handy hints to keep your home safe over the festive period:
- Arrange for parcels to be delivered with neighbours if you're going to be out.
- Make sure presents and valuables aren't visible through windows.
- Secure all doors and windows before you leave home - even if you're only away for a short while.
- Protect patio doors with additional locks or security measures.
- Set your burglar alarm when you go to bed at night and when you leave during the day.
- Don't keep house or car keys in obvious locations or anywhere near the front doors.
- Never leave a door key in a convenient hiding place, like under a flower pot etc.
- Use a door chain before you answer the door.
- Be aware of uninvited callers - check identities and if in doubt don't let them in.
- Don't advertise that your home is empty - if you are going away, be careful who you tell. Consider who may have access to messages that you put on social media.
There are warnings tonight that drunken revellers will not be tolerated on our trains at Christmas.
Arriva Trains Wales have launched a campaign to crack down on anti social behaviour during festive season.
They've released a new video, highlighting the impact it has on other passengers.
Sarah Powell reports:
Christmas was nearly cancelled for one grandmother from Neath when her landlords threatened to take down the decorations above her porch.
They said the Santas and snowmen breached health and safety rules - but have now allowed her to keep them up until the New Year.
Sharon Antell says "it's health and safety gone mad."
Tom Sheldrick reports:
A grandmother from the Swansea Valley is raising money for charity by inviting visitors to look around the winter wonderland she has created inside her own home.
Betty Ann Jones, 72, has to start work in September to put up more than 12,000 Christmas lights, and countless more decorations.
Tom Sheldrick reports:
Now when you think Christmas Pudding - exercise probably isn't the first word that springs to mind.
But today in Cardiff that was exactly what was on the menu as hundreds gathered to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
Megan Boot has been finding out some of the very personal stories behind the race:
Ian Thomas from Age Cymru says we need to look after the elderly members of our communities at Christmas and during the rest of they year. Research by the charity revealed that 22% of older people in Wales weren't looking forward to Christmas because it makes them feel 'more lonely'
Age Cymru say that whilst Christmas is a time of 'happiness' for many of us, it can be a very 'lonely time' for older people.
Latest research by Age Cymru has revealed that 22 per cent of older people in Wales are not looking forward to Christmas.
The study also revealed that one fifth of those who were not looking forward to Christmas said that it brought back too many memories of those who had passed away.
Age Cymru has set up a Spread the Warmth campaign to help tackle health, heating and loneliness issues for older people this winter.
