Nelson Mandela death: He 'healed a bitterly divided nation' says Peter Hain

Former South African President Nelson Mandela healed a "bitterly divided nation," MP and lifelong anti-apartheid activist Peter Hain has said.

Mr Hain told BBC Radio Wales Mr Mandela's shoes were "always going to be impossible to fill" and none of his successors have done this.

He told Oliver Hides South Africa's leaders must do better to uphold Mr Mandela's values.
