BBC Wales withdraws Casualty smoking plot claim

BBC Cymru Wales has withdrawn its claim that a story line in medical TV drama Casualty had to be pulled because of the smoking ban on film sets in Wales.

It now says the story did run after the production team found an alternative way of filming a smoking scene.

The claim was made in evidence to an assembly committee examining whether film sets should be exempt from the smoking ban as they are in England.

BBC Wales arts correspondent Huw Thomas told BBC Wales Today more about what happened.
