Social care: Jeremy Hunt hails 'fully-funded solution'

As the UK government prepares to outline how it will pay for social care for the elderly in England, it remains unclear how this will impact Wales.

It is expected to include a £75,000 cap on the costs people pay for care and a rise in the threshold for means-tested support from £23,250 to £123,000.

Health secretary Jeremy Hunt said the "scandal" of many people selling homes to pay care bills must be tackled.

There is the possibility people in Wales will subsidise the policy.

Parliamentary correspondent David Cornock spoke to Felicity Evans.
