Crime concern over youth club closures across Wales

A decline in youth groups in Wales could lead to more youngsters getting involved with crime, teenagers have said.

The Council for Wales of Voluntary Youth Services said about 30% of the sector was not confident it would make it past the current financial year.

The service has called for help to stop clubs "disappearing" for good.

The Welsh Local Government Association said it was up to councils consider what is best for their area.

Young people in the Cynon Valley spoke to BBC Wales about the loss of their youth club, which closed earlier this year.
