It’s not the most salubrious area of Cardiff.

There are copious restaurants and fast food outlets, […]
It was an indifferent kind of game for me up until that point. I knew anything worthy of sending to picture desks would have to at least be on a par with the many other photographers around me from big agencies. And until then nothing really was. Gareth Bale had run the whole show, dragging […]
