Cardiff woman Louise Kelton nominated as US marshal

President Barack Obama has nominated a physiotherapist from Cardiff to become a US marshal.

Louise Kelton, 57, has been formally sworn into the post, which holds legendary status in the United States.

It is the oldest federal law enforcement office in America and marshals track down some of the country's most wanted fugitives.

Ms Kelton, who moved to Louisiana aged 23, is marshal for the Middle District of Tennessee.
