Pupils' WW1 trench experience

Carmarthenshire schoolchildren are given the chance to experience life in the trenches - a little closer to home.

Schoolchildren in Carmarthenshire are being given the chance to experience what life in a World War One trench was like.

But the pupils at schools in the county are not being asked to take a trip to France or Belgium to uncover the stark realities of the Great War.

Instead, a replica trench has been carefully reconstructed at Pendine - an outdoor classroom for students learning about events almost a century ago.

BBC Wales reporter Sarah Moore went along to see for herself.
