Dublin 'wrong place' to hear Dylan Thomas photos claim

A breach of copyright claim against the Welsh government over photographs used of Dylan Thomas in a tourism drive has been thrown out by a court in Ireland.

Visit Wales used photos taken in the 1930s to help promote the 100th anniversary of the poet's birth.

A court in Dublin heard the damages case involves Pablo Star Ltd, which owns the copyright.

But the judge said if the case was to proceed, it should be heard in a court in Wales or England.

BBC Wales arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas reports from Dublin.
