Rural rates rise makes it 'very difficult' for firms

Business owners have said they are under threat over what they claim are unfair business rate rises in rural parts of Wales.

Company owners in Monmouthshire said some are facing increases in excess of 130%.

The Welsh Government said it would be providing £200m worth of business rate relief next year.

Monmouth rare tea importer David Tovey and Philip Ramsden, who runs the Gatehouse Pub in the town, said the rises would make things "very difficult".
