Football Association Wales tackles abuse of young players

A campaign to stop parents and spectators shouting at children from the touchlines has been launched by the Football Association of Wales.

It says children as young as five are verbally abused, causing a growing number of youngsters to quit sport.

Wales manager Chris Coleman said children "need to be supported and encouraged from the touchline".

Parents and officials at Cardiff Hibernian FC spoke about the issue.
