Brexit 'may hamper child poverty fight in Wales'

Britain's exit from the European Union could hamper the fight against child poverty, the children's commissioner for Wales has said.

Child poverty has fallen in Wales but Prof Sally Holland said the potential loss of European money could have "negative consequences" on that.

She has called on the Welsh and UK governments to pledge to replace any shortfall, telling BBC Wales the poorest areas may "lose out" after Brexit.

The UK Government said it was committed to tackling the root causes of poverty.
