Dannie Abse 'a cultural ambassador'
Tributes have been paid to the Welsh poet and author Dannie Abse, who has died aged 91.
The award-winning writer died on Sunday surrounded by his family after a short illness.
Born in Cardiff in 1923, he had a successful career writing poems, novels and autobiographies, while also practising as a doctor.
Fellow Welsh poet Owen Sheers led tributes, and urged people to read Mr Abse's poems and "remember him".
Writer and friend Tony Curtis reads an extract from The Bus - published last year - and describes Dannie Abse as a "cultural ambassador" for Wales.
