Hundreds of campaigners are marching through the streets of Cardiff calling for the city's grassroots music venues to be protected.

The Save Womanby Street campaign is calling on Cardiff Council and the Welsh Government to change planning policies to protect music venues against noise complaints.

Venue owners say current planning laws are unfair, and leave established venues vulnerable to complaints from the occupants of new residential developments.

The march left Womanby Street heading through the streets to City Hall.
