Chess player switches sides to play for Wales

Wales now has its first chess grandmaster following an English player's decision to move sides.

Nigel Davies is one of England's top players.

But, dissatisfied with the way English Chess was being run, the 55 year-old from Merseyside has switched sides, to play for Wales.

He lived in Wrexham for 14 years, so qualifies to join the Welsh Chess Union.

Matthew Richards reports.
