'Children should be protected from smacking'

Smacking has no place in modern society, Wales' children's commissioner Sally Holland has said.

Dr Holland reiterated her call for a smacking ban in the wake of plans for parental discipline to be devolved to the assembly.

The move, if passed, would make it possible for AMs to pass to outlaw smacking in Wales.

Dr Holland said children should have the right not to be hit by their parents.
