Hotels full-up thanks to weekend of sport

A festival of sport on the weekend meant there was no room at the inn in Swansea.

The city's hotels and other accommodation providers were full-up because of events like the Rugby World Cup, the Admiral Swansea Bay 10k and Barclays Premier League football action at the Liberty Stadium.

About 4,500 people raced in the Admiral Swansea Bay 10k on Sunday, with some of the elite runners who took part having travelled from as far afield as Ethiopia, Kenya and Canada.

The Canadian rugby team, who played Ireland in Cardiff on the weekend, is also staying in Swansea during the Rugby World Cup's group stages, and the Swans took on Everton on Saturday.
