Votes at 16: Views from Coleg y Cymoedd students

Students from Coleg y Cymoedd in Nantgarw, Rhondda Cynon Taf, give their views on plans to give 16 and 17 year olds the right to vote in local elections.

It is part of a package of reforms aimed at boosting turnout put forward by the Welsh Government.
