A decision to cut the budget for adult community learning has been criticised by the main group representing adult learners in Wales.

NIACE Dysgu Cymru told BBC Wales the Welsh government cuts were short sighted and would mean fewer adults were able to continue their education.

It said adult education was key to increasing jobs and economic growth in Wales.

BBC Wales education correspondent Arwyn Jones spoke to adult learner Aquila Cook and Cerys Furlong, director NIACE Dysgu Cymru.
