Voters 'polarised' on Welsh assembly, Prof Roger Scully

Voters in Wales appear "polarised" on their opinion of the Welsh assembly, an academic has said following the public of results from a BBC Cymru Wales poll.

The survey carried out by ICM found only 5% of people want to see an independent Wales, but that figure rose to 7% in the event of an independent Scotland.

The number of voters who want to see the Welsh assembly abolished has risen 10% in the past four years.

But more than a third said they would like to see it gain more powers.

Prof Roger Scully, of the Wales Governance Centre at Cardiff University, said voters seem split on what they want from the assembly.
