Tight security as Cardiff gears up for Champions League final

Security has been increased across Cardiff as the city prepares to host the UEFA Champions League final.

Tens of thousands of supporters from the UK and Europe are set to arrive in the city for tonight's final when title-holders Real Madrid will take on Juventus.

The clash between the two European clubs will take place at the 74,500-capacity Principality Stadium - which is being renamed the National Stadium of Wales as UEFA regulations ban the commercial title of a non-tournament sponsor being used.

There is a heavy police presence both of armed and non-armed officers, along with facial recognition teams, who are using the technology to monitor people on pre-determined "watch lists", which may include wanted or missing persons.

South Wales Police has said 6,000 police officers will be deployed in the city over the UEFA Champions Festival, which began yesterday in Cardiff Bay and will end tomorrow, while 2,000 more officers will be in Cardiff today alone.
