Wales take on England in the crucial Six Nations decider on Saturday.

South Wales Police will take to Twitter on Saturday to chart one of their busiest days of the year, as Wales take on England in a Six Nations decider at the Millennium Stadium.

On the same day, Swansea will play Arsenal in the Premier League at the Liberty Stadium, and the force said the combination of the two events could mean the day will rival New Year’s Eve in terms of the number of calls they expect to take.

To showcase its work on what it is dubbing #supersaturday, South Wales Police will be using social media to tell the story of a day in the life of its officers.

The force will use its Facebook page@swpolice Twitter account and the #supersaturday hashtag to keep people up to date on the policing operations in Cardiff and Swansea, and the work of officers across South Wales.

Assistant Chief Constable Matt Jukes said: “Social media is already transforming the way in which we communicate as a police force.

“We have nearly 20,000 people following the @swpolice Twitter account and 7,000 followers on Facebook and those numbers are only going to increase.

“By building on this following our operation on #supersaturday will allow us to engage positively and reach many more people than would ever have been possible otherwise.”

News and pictures from the day will be added to the existing Twitter and Facebook accounts, and the force will also launch a new Pinterest site on Saturday morning.
