£46m in criminal profits seized in Wales

More than £46m in criminals' cash and assets has been recovered in the last decade by police and other agencies in Wales.

Police and crime commissioners (PCCs) say the use of the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) to claw back cash from offenders ensures "crime doesn't pay".

Assets seized include cash, buildings, cars and jewellery.

The figures obtained by BBC Wales come as the PCCs look at the way the money is spent, with Plaid MP Elfyn Llwyd urging more for drug rehabilitation.
