Ifor ap Glyn on the 'challenge' of being national poet

Welsh writer and TV presenter Ifor ap Glyn will be the new national poet of Wales.

The Caernarfon-based poet will take up the role in May and succeeds Gillian Clarke who has held the post since 2008.

Mr ap Glyn writes in Welsh and will be the fourth national poet since the unpaid role was created in 2005.

He told BBC Wales arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas about what the job would entail.
