People visiting Cardiff are being warned to expect delays on the road and rail as Wales’ rugby and football teams are both in action on Saturday.

Wales play Argentina in a rugby autumn series game at the Principality Stadium, which kicks off at 17:30 GMT.

At 19:45, Chris Coleman’s side face Serbia in a football World Cup qualifier at Cardiff City Stadium.

This, combined with Christmas shoppers, is expected to result in delays getting in and out of the city.

Westgate Street, Park Street and Scott Road will all be closed from 15:30 to 20:30.

Following the Wales v Argentina match, Cowbridge Road East from its junction with Cathedral Road to the junction with Westgate Street, along with Castle Street, Duke Street, Wood Street and St Mary Street will all be shut.

Cardiff council said train services into the city would be busy all day, with extra capacity on Marches, north Wales and Ebbw Vale lines after 21:30.

Cardiff Queen Street station will be closed from 18:45 and queues at Cardiff Central after the match are expected to exceed two hours.

After the Wales v Serbia match, Grangetown station will be for people travelling on Penarth, Barry and Vale of Glamorgan services only while Ninian Park Station will be for people travelling to Waun-gron Park, Fairwater and Danescourt.

For valleys and main line services, fans must use Cardiff Central.

Buses will be diverted away from city centre stops and will relocate to Churchill Way for those travelling east, Greyfriars Road for the north and Tudor Street for the west.

St Mary Street taxi rank will close from 15:00 until 21:30 but the Mill Lane one is open as normal.
