'Jobs and sense of community' key to happiness in Ebbw Vale

Some parts of Wales show the widest gap in the UK between those happy with life - and those who are not.

Blaenau Gwent and other parts of the south Wales valleys were singled out by research into official UK government questions on "wellbeing".

Analysts found Blaenau Gwent had one of the biggest overall differences between those who are content and unhappy - a term dubbed "wellbeing inequality".

Researchers hope the findings can help steer government policy.

BBC Wales asked people in Ebbw Vale whether they were happy, and why some people in the community might not be.
