Raising a child in Wales costs £207,000

The average cost of bringing up a child in Wales has increased by nearly 50% over the last decade to £207,120, new figures show.

The annual Cost of a Child report says from birth to age 21 parents are spending £66,647 more than they did in 2003.

And as Anthony Green from Penmaenmawr in Conwy told BBC Wales' Chris Dearden - the bills can keep on mounting, even when a child has left home.
