RANDOM PHOTO OF CARDIFF DEVELOPMENT INTEREST:

This is the Bridge St Tower, the central core is up to level 20
and it's looking pretty tall! What is amazing is that the Customhouse St
Tower which is now looking like a certainty (hoarding work progressing now)
will be twice this height and a little more. Cardiff is going to at last
have an actual Skyscraper! - definition here
