Traffic cone - the first line of defence.

Traffic cone – the first line of defence.

It seem that, in 2014, an impressive gatehouse and crenellated battlements simply aren’t enough to keep out unwelcome visitors! This fence and strategically placed traffic cone were deployed to give added security to a NATO summit, which is currently taking place in Newport (or at least that’s what an old lady sitting at a bus stop on this side of the fence told me). Presumably it will be taken down after the summit finishes.
