Estimated 70,000 attend NATO 'Meet the Forces' day

Organisers estimate that up to 70,000 people attended today's military open event in Cardiff Bay, to mark the end of the NATO summit.

Royal Navy Type 45 Destroyer HMS Duncan was the main attraction - and five other warships from NATO member states were also open to the public.

The British army and RAF also played a part - with children enjoying the chance to clamber aboard a military tank or jet.
