Pembrokeshire council leader regrets Mik Smith 'shortfalls'

Pembrokeshire's council leader says he has "deep regret for any shortfalls" in the case of a sacked youth worker who later went on to abuse a boy.

Jamie Adams was speaking at a full council meeting about Mik Smith, who was jailed earlier in July.

Smith stayed in his job in the council despite an internal inquiry in 2005.

A Labour motion calling for a full investigation was dropped, after the children's commissioner said he would pursue the matter.

Abigail Neal was at the local authority's meeting.
