Fran Murphy meets mystery lifesaver after appeal

A Cardiff holidaymaker has been reunited with the mystery man who saved her from drowning off a French beach.

Fran Murphy, 52, was paddling with friends on a sandbank at a resort near Perpignan when it collapsed, leaving her unconscious.

The group was saved by a man from Swansea, and Ms Murphy appealed on BBC Wales for help to try and trace him.

Now, she has met Ian Hullin and said it felt "wonderful" to be able to thank him for saving her life.

BBC Wales Today's Caroline Evans reports.
