WW1 legacy of former prime minister David Lloyd George

A former prime minister from Gwynedd has long been recognised as one of the men who steered Britain to victory in World War One.

David Lloyd George, the MP for Caernarfon Boroughs, had already served as chancellor, minister of munitions and secretary of state for war during World War One.

It was in his role as prime minister that he saw the tide of war turning in favour of the Allies and helped to create a welfare state.

But despite his roles, the man at the helm of British politics was once an opponent of war.

Radio Wales' Charlotte Dubenskij looks at his legacy.
