Sybil Ruscoe talks to sheep farmers in Llanfairfechan in North Wales, a fortnight after heavy snow cut them off from their flocks. What's kept them going against the odds?

Sybil Ruscoe is in Llanfairfechan in North Wales to talk to sheep farmers who have fought bitter cold and snowdrifts to save their flocks. The worst conditions for fifty years, during the lambing season, have seen thousands of sheep and lambs perish across the UK. Sybil goes to see the devastation at Gareth Wyn Jones' farm and asks farmers in the area what's kept them going during the last ten days, as they assess the impact on their businesses and their long term future.
