Ferry operators have warned of expected disruption this weekend due to storm Ciara, meaning Wales fans heading back from the Dublin for the weekend’s Six Nations clash could face problems getting home.

Officials from Natural Resources Wales said people living near the Welsh coast should be prepared for possible flooding and urged them to check the latest alerts and weather warnings over the weekend .

“We are also warning people to avoid visiting the seafront due to the risk of being swept away by large waves or hit by wave and wind-blown debris,” said NRW’s Richard Preece.
