Welsh government reshuffle: Mark Drakeford new health minister

First Minister Carwyn Jones has appointed a new health minister in a reshuffle of his cabinet.

Lesley Griffiths, who survived a no-confidence vote in the assembly last year, will take over as Local Government Minister while the new man in charge of health is Mark Drakeford.

The Conservatives say this could be a turning point for the Welsh NHS if the new health minister is willing to put right what his predecessor got wrong.

BBC Wales Political Editor Betsan Powys reports.
