RTS Wales Web Addresses
We have arranged for our home page to be accessed using the URL rts.org.uk/cymru .  You are still able to use rts.org.uk/wales , of course.  Bookmark them both!
Following on from that, we have discontinued the rts.org.uk/latest-news-rts-wales address, so if you have that as a bookmark, it will have ceased to work.
Update:  We have now removed the redirects to other pages, to give us more accurate site statistics.  If you now find any of your bookmarks don't work, we can only apologise for the inconvenience, and hope you can find those pages easily again.
