Chancellor's Autumn Statement means extra £100m for Wales

The Welsh government is to receive around £100m extra over the next two years as a result of plans unveiled in the chancellor's Autumn Statement.

The cash is despite Whitehall departments facing further cuts of £1bn a year over three years.

UK ministers said it was "further proof" of their commitment to providing "sustained economic recovery" in Wales.

But the Welsh government said it had "done little to change the challenging public finance outlook".

BBC Wales' political editor Nick Servini reports.
