Coast path's £32m economy boost, figures suggest

The Wales Coast Path attracted nearly three million visitors and brought £32m to the economy over 12 months, figures suggest.

Tourism bosses said it had added "another dimension" to the attraction of walking in Wales.

The coastal path stretches 870 miles (1,400km) from the River Dee in Flintshire to Chepstow in the south.

Culture Minister John Griffiths told Oliver Hides of BBC Radio Wales the report was excellent news.
