Council mergers: Poor services 'letting people down'

People are being "let down" by poor public services, according to a member of the commission that proposed a major overhaul of the public sector.

Nick Bennett, a member of the Williams Commission, will soon become Wales' public services ombudsman.

He was speaking as the Welsh government starts the process of legislating to merge councils.

Published in January, the Williams Commission said the 22 local councils should be cut to as few as 10.

Daniel Davies reports.
