Wales 'more racially prejudiced,' attitudes poll finds

More people in Wales admit to being racially prejudiced than in the UK as a whole, research has suggested.

Data obtained by The Guardian newspaper suggests 34% people in Wales admitted being "very prejudiced" or "a little prejudiced",

It is a rise of 14 percentage points since 2000, based on figures from the British Social Attitudes (BSA) survey.

Communities Minister Jeff Cuthbert said it was "concerning" as people looked for "scapegoats" in times of austerity.

Paul Heaney reports.
