Many teenagers in Wales are put off from applying to Oxford and Cambridge Universities because of a lack of self-confidence, says a report.

The man tasked with getting more Welsh students into Oxbridge said teachers often lacked practical advice to offer pupils applying to top universities.

Former Welsh secretary Paul Murphy said pupils should be helped to "aim for the stars".

Tomos Livingstone reports.
