'Cultural changes' needed to fight Wales' hate crime

Nearly 2,000 hate crimes have been recorded in Wales in one year.

The 1,810 hate crimes reported in 2012-13 were just the "tip of the iceberg", said the Welsh government as it launched a new helpline and website for victims.

Wales needs "cultural changes" in order to tackle hate crimes, said Communities Minister Jeff Cuthbert.

Victim Andrew Davies, from Swansea, moved house after receiving anonymous homophobic threats for 18 months.

Caroline Evans reports.
