End to row over valleys rail electrification

A deal has been struck to electrify the south Wales valleys rail network, ending an eight-month row between the UK and Welsh governments over who will fund it.

Prime Minister David Cameron said the project would have a "transformative effect" on communities when he made the announcement on Friday.

The work will be carried out as part of a major upgrade, which includes electrifying the main line between London and Swansea by 2018.

BBC Wales' political editor Nick Servini reports.
