Campaign group's call to protect Welsh place names

Campaigners against changing Welsh place names to English have warned it could harm local culture.

Those in favour of the move argue it makes the country more accessible to tourists.

But supporters of the Mynyddoedd Pawb campaign, which means Everyone's Mountains, are calling on the Welsh government to legislate to protect the ancient names.

BBC's The Wales Report spoke to campaigner Ceri Cunnington, who runs a social enterprise to develop adventure tourism in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

The programme can be watched on BBC One Wales on Wednesday 17 July at 22:40 BST.
