The man in charge of the Royal Welsh regimental goat is retiring after 30 years.

Sergeant David Joseph will lead Shenkin out for the final time at the Millennium Stadium later today.

Sgt Joseph told ITV Wales: "Some of the things we've done are quite unbelievable. The goat has been inside Number 10 Downing Street. We've also visited Buckingham Palace and St James' Palace."
