Cardiff City fans have two reasons to celebrate, after adding to their promotion festivities by securing the championship on Saturday.

Now Cardiff Council are to mark the achievements with a day of celebration on May 5.

Council leader Heather Joyce said it was "only right and proper that the club will want to mark these two incredible achievements with a huge celebration" and described Cardiff winning the championship as "the icing on the cake."

She said: "The event, which will take place on May 5 and will include an open top bus tour from Cardiff city centre to the Bay will hopefully give everyone a chance to see the team and show their appreciation for their achievement as well as give us all another reason to celebrate."
