Welsh mine deaths: Miners remembered at church services

Church services across south Wales have been paying tribute to four miners killed in a Swansea Valley colliery.

Phillip Hill, 45, Garry Jenkins, 39, David Powell, 50, and Charles Breslin, 62 all died in flooded Gleision Colliery near Pontardawe.

An appeal fund for the families raised £20,000 in its first day. Prince Charles has agreed to become the royal patron of the fund.

Katherine Downes reports.
