Wales were playing Italy in a friendly rugby international match, so the city was plastered with the two country’s flags. Happily, Wales went on to win 23-19, although they suffered a major setback as two of their key players left the field injured.

Statue of John Batchelor (1820-83) ‘The Friend of Freedom,’ in The Hayes.

Created by the sculptor James Milo Griffith and unveiled on 16 October 1886, the statue commemorates the work of the Newport-born, Cardiff based Liberal politician who campaigned against slavery.

Batchelor’s political activities meant that he was constantly rubbing up the all-powerful Bute family, so much so that a petition of 1,200 names was raised in opposition to the statue after his death in 1883.
