'Bumba clart' was a popular one in the 1990's although 'clarts' was coined by the great Norman Stanley Fletcher in the 'Porridge' comedy show as in 'dropped me right in the clarts', I do remember 'safe spa/bla(u)d'...

The incorrect use of tenses ('I seen im down Tesco's') is a 'thing' but not as prevalent as we might think and probably extends beyond Newport - I also think a lot of people do it as a bit of an in joke.
