Timber house could help homebuyers in Pembrokeshire

A new scheme is being launched in Pembrokeshire to try and help struggling homebuyers.

It involves timber homes with 55 solar panels on the roof to generate energy.

Western Solar Ltd has completed a prototype, called Ty Solar, for £75,000 - although that does not include a plot of land or connection to utilities.

BBC Wales' environment correspondent Iolo ap Dafydd has the details.
