Bearer Joseph Price's 'very proud day' carrying baton

The Queen's Baton Relay has started its journey in Wales after arriving by plane at Cardiff Airport.

It has made its way to Six Bells in Abertillery where 82-year-old Joseph Price was one of the bearers.

The former miner, who survived the 1960 Six Bells disaster, said carrying the baton was a "very, very proud day".

The baton is also visiting Ebbw Vale, Tredegar and Merthyr.
