More than 1,000 fines for dropping litter or failing to clear up dog mess have been issued in Blaenau Gwent in the six months since the council employed a private firm to patrol the streets of the county borough.

The pilot project has been extended with the company involved being given another six-month contract.

BBC Radio Wales' Stephen Fairclough joined the wardens as they patrolled Abertillery.
