Paul Murphy: 'Schools must show Oxbridge ambition

More pressure must be put on state schools to get pupils into the UK's top universities, MP and former Welsh Secretary Paul Murphy has urged.

Mr Murphy, tasked with getting more Welsh children into Oxford and Cambridge universities, partly blamed a lack of ambition among teachers.

The number of pupils accepted into Oxbridge is falling.

Mr Murphy spoke to BBC Wales parliamentary correspondent David Cornock.
