Russian war medals arrive late for Cardiff ceremony

World War Two veterans invited to a special ceremony in Cardiff by the Russian government had to wait two hours after the wrong medals were sent.

The 67 navy veterans who served with the Arctic convoys were being given Ushakov medals for their role supplying the Eastern front.

But the ceremony was delayed when officials realised the personalised medals were still in London.

Carwyn Jones reports.
