Watchdog Keith Towler says job delay 'frustrating'

The selection process to appoint a new children's champion for Wales has been "less than perfect", the outgoing commissioner has said.

Keith Towler told BBC Radio Wales' Sunday Supplement show it was "frustrating" his replacement had not been chosen a month before he leaves.

Last year a panel failed to agree on the appointment and the selection process started again.

But Mr Towler added an announcement was expected very soon.

Last October the Welsh government said the reason the selection process had been halted was because of a cabinet reshuffle.
