Jellyfish the size of a dustbin migrate to west Wales

New research suggests west Wales is not just an attraction for tourists but for discerning jellyfish.

The Marine Conservation Society, for the first time since 1970, have attempted to map out where jellyfish like to migrate to around the UK.

The barrel jellyfish in particular is fond of the waters around Wales.

Dr Victoria Hobson, a marine biologist at Swansea University, was part of the EcoJel project run by the university which finished in 2012.

She explains to BBC Radio Wales' Felicity Evans what people should look out for.
