9 January 2014 Last updated at 11:08 GMT

The UK government has been accused of failing to appreciate the seriousness of recent storms in Wales, during a debate in the House of Lords.

The Treasury should step in to help pay for the clear-up along the coastline, according to former Plaid Cymru leader Lord Wigley.

A UK government minister said it was a matter for the Welsh government.

Lord Wigley told the Lords more help is essential while Lord Elystan-Morgan, an independent crossbench peer who lives near Aberystwyth, told BBC Radio Wales why he believes Wales needs help.
