'Cutest' breed of sheep brought to Wales for first time

A breed of sheep described as "the cutest in the world" has been introduced to Wales for the first time.

Marcus Cox from New Inn, Torfaen, has imported the distinctive Valais sheep - an unusual mountain breed from Switzerland.

He believes it is easier to work with and can produce more meat and wool than traditional breeds.

Mr Cox now has plans to show his unusual flock at the Royal Welsh Show next month.

Reporter Paul Heaney went to meet him.
