Grass Fires, Library Cuts and Owls

Grass Fires, Library Cuts and Owls

Grassfires - as fire services across south and west Wales deal with a spate of wildfires, many of which are started deliberately, we look at the new initiative to tackle controlled burning.

Rural libraries - in Pembrokeshire could it be the last chapter for the mobile library van? While in Ceredigion it's down to volunteers to run their own service in Newquay.

Rural transport - local authority cuts in rural Wrexham bring to and a vital taxi bus service - what does it mean for the elderly residents in the villages?

And the Owl man of Ebbw Vale - a lack of restrictions on people owning birds of prey has led to one man's life time passion of offering them sanctuary.
