He explained that he would be hosting a discussion between the candidates for the elections and that he would be trying to give equal weight to each candidate and allow the opportunity for them to offer their views on issues such as healthcare, education, employment and the EU.

Many of the people watching were very passionate about their opinions and made sure their views were heard. Hal asked about future job prospects for him in the area and was live on BBC Radio Wales.
