Security gates are set to finally be installed on Prince Charles Quay in Cardigan, following a five-year campaign.

Locals were concerned that the gaps between the walls in could present a hazard for children playing in the area. During the quay's regeneration the three openings were constructed to allow mooring access for barges below.

Now, following a "long battle" with Ceredigion Country Council, a set of gates depicting images of icons from the area, including the bridge and wildlife such as herons and Teifi salmon will be installed in the coming weeks.

Paul Oakley, Afon Teifi Fairways navigation and safety officer, told the Tivyside Advertiser: "We were making a serious point about safety. We felt like we had to wait until a serious accident happened, which would have been tragic for the family and for the whole town."

During the regeneration work a wall was installed adorned with the words of a poem written by Ceri Wyn Jones in both Welsh and an English translation.
