Gwendraeth Valley village flooding fight remembered

It is 50 years since a small Carmarthenshire village fought and won to stop their valley being flooded.

Homes and livelihoods at Llangyndeyrn in the Gwendraeth Valley would have been lost forever, if plans by the Swansea Water Corporation had been agreed.

But as Cemlyn Davies reports - villagers were not about to let that happen.
