Welsh mine deaths: Tributes paid at church services

Church services across south Wales have paid tribute to the four miners killed in a Swansea Valley colliery.

Phillip Hill, 45, Garry Jenkins, 39, David Powell, 50, and Charles Breslin, 62 all died in flooded Gleision Colliery near Pontardawe.

Prince Charles has agreed to become the royal patron of an appeal fund to raise money for families of the victims.
