Welsh village stink over Farteg name

People in the small Welsh village of Varteg are kicking up a stink about plans to rename it Farteg.

Welsh language campaigners claim the ancient name should be replaced because there is no 'V' in the ancient tongue of Wales.

But Torfaen councillor Giles Davies worries villagers will be left "open to ridicule."

BBC Radio 5 live's Phil Williams asked Welsh language expert Cefin Campbell why the name should be changed, and Pratt's Bottom resident Gwyneth Hudson explained why living in a humorously named place can be useful.
