Celtic's Adam Matthews has become the latest player to withdraw from Chris Coleman's Wales squad to face Andorra in the opening Euro 2016 qualifier next Tuesday.

Injury to the defender means a call up for Cardiff City's Declan John from the Under 21's.

Matthews joins Reading forward Hal Robson-Kanu and West Ham defender James Collins who have also withdrawn through injury.

Meanwhile a decision on whether the qualifier will go ahead at Andorra's new national stadium is expected to be made by UEFA today.

UEFA officials have been carrying out pitch inspections over the weekend and have called for more tests of the surface before a final decision is made.

A campaign is underway to get the UK Government to fund a £25m charitable trust to help nuclear test veterans and their families.

Thousands of servicemen were exposed to radiation during weapon tests in the 1950s and many say it's affected their own health as well as their family's. The Government argues this has yet to be proved.

The family of an RAF serviceman from Tal-y-Bont believe their late father's exposure to radiation caused them serious health problems. Tegwen and Dominic Owen are supporting the campaign.

Business owners in Cardiff are concerned that the NATO summit security measures around the city centre are having an impact on their trade.

Shop owners close to Cardiff Castle say they're losing up to £100 every day because of the ring of fencing surrounding the castle.

Other businesses fear they may have to shut during the two days of the summit as they've already seen a drop in custom during the busiest time of year.

Business has been dreadful ever since we've had this fence put around. Business has been down and I'm losing like £100 a day. That's the easy way to put it. I was hoping to take advantage of this summer time with kids on vacation but I'm down really badly.

Elsewhere, companies in Newport and Cwmbran say the NATO summit has been a good opportunity to market themselves with local businesses being contracted during preparations for the summit.

It's really good for the local economy for Wales in particular. Same as the Ryder Cup in 2010. For our business the prestigious aspect of the contract we can use it going forward in our marketing.
