Organ donation vote: Mark Drakeford 'very relieved but very proud'

The Welsh Assembly has made history by backing a bill that sees Wales become the first country in the UK to bring in a policy by which people have to opt out if they do not want their organs donated automatically when they die.

The debate in the chamber went on for about five hours ending with a vote just before 22:00 BST on Tuesday.

Health Minister Mark Drakeford gave his reaction to BBC Wales' Steffan Messenger.
