15th Century paintings unveiled to public in Llancarfan

Rare 15th Century paintings at a church in the Vale of Glamorgan are being unveiled to the public.

They were found by a team of experts brought in to investigate a thin red line of paint on the wall.

St Cadoc's in Llancarfan was built on the site of a 7th Century monastery and founded around 1200.

The finds include a huge medieval wall painting of St George and the Dragon and a fresco of the Seven Deadly Sins.
