Flood damage costs in Wales will run into millions

The cost of repairing the damage caused by recent storms and high tides around Wales is expected to cost councils £8m, BBC Wales has found.

The estimated bill is expected to be listed in Natural Resources Wales' (NRW) review of coastline damage.

NRW will hand its report, based on estimates from councils, to the Welsh government on Friday.

Of the worst-hit areas, Conwy's estimated repair costs of £5m is the highest so far.

BBC Wales environment correspondent Iolo ap Dafydd reports.
