'No clear strategy' for children - Keith Towler

Services to protect vulnerable children could be lost due to a lack of vision and leadership by the Welsh government, claimed the children's commissioner.

Publishing his final annual report in the role, Keith Towler urged ministers to protect children's rights and shield services from funding cutbacks.

He called on the Welsh government to "re-state its vision for children".

The Welsh government said supporting children and protecting their rights was at its "very heart".

But Mr Towler told BBC Radio Wales' Felicity Evans there was still a need for a minister for children to achieve that.
