Police across Wales gear up for 'Mad Friday'

Police across Wales are gearing up for one of the busiest nights of the year as revellers enjoy a night out on the final Friday before Christmas.

Extra care centres have been set up in Wrexham and Rhyl as "Mad" or "Black Friday" marks the start of the festive season for many workers.

A temporary triage unit has been set up in Cardiff, while in Swansea a help point will look after drinkers through the night.

Inspector Paul Wycherley, of North Wales Police, said it was often a challenging night but one that officers were ready for.
