Public services ombudsman for Wales wants more privacy power

Wales could become the first country in the UK to have an independent watchdog that could stop the publication of some of its reports and prosecute those who go against its wishes.

Public Services Ombudsman Peter Tyndall says he wants the power to charge complainants with contempt of court if they go to the media with what he says should be confidential.

BBC Wales political editor Betsan Powys, at Cardiff Bay, outlined his call to Claire Summers in the Wales Today studio.
