TRAVEL TO CARDIFF: One thing we note in the BBC Travel guide for the Cardiff concert is that, while Arriva Trains Wales are laying on extra trains, there won't be any extra services between London and Cardiff - so First will be cramming everyone into the usual number of trains and won't be incurring an extra penny in operating costs.

Arriva warns that if the concert overruns at all, the extra services they're providing afterwards won't be much use, as they're not going to bother waiting for the very people they've been put on to collect.

In the interests of fairness, we've asked Arriva how much of their revenue from the extra trips to Cardiff they'll be offering to the tsunami appeal.
