Game shows life for young carers

Young carers in Wales have turned their lives into a board game to raise awareness of their plight.

Players discover the different paths taken by young people depending on the instructions on cards they pick up during the course of the game.

Carers Trust Swansea Bay said it had been well received in trials in four local schools.

Vickie Lovell, 16, from Neath, who cares for her mother and stepfather, explains how the game sheds light on their lives.
