Tal-y-Bont flood action pledged by first minister

The first minister is to return to north Wales to visit a flood-hit village, as he pledges £2.3m in funding to protect communities.

The new cash will be for immediate support for homes and businesses affected by flooding over Christmas.

Residents in Tal-y-Bont near Bangor expressed anger last week after being left waiting to meet Carwyn Jones who was visiting the nearby A55 dual carriageway which was also hit by flooding.

The first minister has apologised but said he did not know they had been expecting him.

Here, he outlines plans for flood defence work in the area in an interview on BBC Radio Wales with Gareth Lewis.
