Crosskeys poet shortlisted for Costa Poetry Award 2014

A poet whose work has been nominated for the Costa Poetry Award has said hearing his work being discussed alongside household names was a "surreal experience".

Jonathan Edwards from Crosskeys, Caerphilly county, made the shortlist with his collection My Family and Other Superheroes.

He told BBC Radio Wales his work was a mixture of poems about his family and famous people.

He read Oliver Hides an excerpt from a poem about a Wales international football match featuring Ian Rush.
