Security barriers fitted across Cardiff ahead of Champions League Final

Security barriers are being built across Cardiff ahead of the Champions League Final in less than two weeks time.

Real Madrid and Juventus will battle it out at the Principality Stadium on June 3, with 170,000 fans expected to travel to the Welsh capital to watch the match or soak up the atmosphere.

Security measures are being put in place on certain roads to create an "Inner Secure Area" in the city centre - a safe zone around the stadium where security operations will be at a high level. These measures will also extend to Cardiff Bay, where the UEFA Champions Festival will take place between June 1 and June 4.

South Wales Police says this will be one of the biggest security operations ever undertaken in Cardiff. There will be an increase in visual policing before and during the event and some officers will be armed.
