“Several” people were involved in an altercation, South Wales Police said.

A boy aged 17, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with GBH, violent disorder and possession of a bladed article.

He appeared at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court on Monday and was remanded in custody until a further hearing 11 March.
