Nafeza 2 world - On Tuesday night, pictures emerged on social media showing cars parked on pavements and grass verges on and near Taff Embankment, close to the stadium.

While the Taff Embankment is not included within the road closures for the Taylor Swift gig, residents in the area called the issue "frustrating" and "selfish".

Not everyone on the road saw the same issues but residents there did say parking can sometimes be an issue.

"I have always been quite fortunate," said Jayne Stitfall about the parking situation on Taff Embankment.

"There have been one or two occasions but I don’t see what you can do."

There is a mix of permit and non-permit parking on Taff Embankment.

Ms Stitfall, 65, said she would not want people to be discouraged from visiting the city centre, Cardiff Bay or Grangetown.

However, she said the parking situation could sometimes be "very inconvenient".

Another resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said: "We get problems sometimes, during the rugby, but there were no problems this week.

"It may be an issue further up but... not here."

The council said the number of people park illegally during large events appeared to increase.

It issued 384 PCNs on 6 June last year when Coldplay played one of two gigs at the Principality Stadium.

At the time, the council said it tended to issue about 200 on a normal weekday.
