A Wales fan who lost his bags travelling across France for the Euros has been forced to wear a Welsh dragon onesie lent to him by a friend.

Owen Midha, 19, from Swansea, was left with only the shirt on his back after leaving the train from Bordeaux to Lille without his bags.

Fortunately his friend Luke Waller came to the rescue and pulled out the onesie which Owen was sporting as England took on Wales in Lens.

Mr Midha said: "I managed to lose my bags on the train here and my good friend Luke lent me this.

"There I am, no Wales flag, no Wales shirt and he says, 'All right, I'll lend you my onesie'. And I said, 'Sorted'.

"I'm getting all the looks. I'll be wearing it until I go home... I've got no choice."

Mr Waller, also 19 from Swansea, said: "To be honest, it doesn't fit me any more. It's quite fortunate I brought it really."

The group were in the fan zone for the clash against England and will be heading for home on Friday.
