Health debate Labour no-show 'disgust'

Opposition parties have criticised the Welsh government's decision not to attend a TV debate on the NHS.

Health Minister Mark Drakeford pre-recorded an interview for BBC Wales' Week in Week Out instead of joining the debate on the health service.

The Tories described it as "disgusting" and Plaid said it was a "scandal".

The Welsh NHS has been under unprecedented pressures with financial constraints and more demand for key services such as A&E and elderly care.

BBC Wales' James Williams tells BBC Radio Wales' Felicity Evans what happened at the debate.
