Students and graduates from the University of South Wales have developed and made a dragon as part of a Welsh advertising campaign.

They used this model, seen at Caerphilly Castle, as a basis for their design. The advert sees the creature fly from Caerphilly to Chepstow, Cardiff Bay, Harlech Castle, and then finally, landing at Caernarfon Castle.
