Felling sick trees in ancient wood is 'best thing'

The felling of diseased trees in Wales' largest ancient woodland has been described as "the best thing", by the Woodland Trust.

Larch trees at Wentwood Forest, near Newport, have become infected with the fungal disease Phytophthora ramorum.

The Trust's Rory Francis told the BBC's Hywel Griffith that the move was necessary to stop the disease spreading further.
