Ex-Japan PM and anti-Wylfa campaigners at Anglesey visit

Anti-nuclear campaigners have met the former Prime Minister of Japan to fight plans for the £8bn Wylfa Newydd nuclear plant on Anglesey.

Naoto Kan resigned after Fukushima was hit by a tsunami in 2011, causing radiation leaks.

He has since become an anti-nuclear campaigner and came to Wales on Thursday to oppose the new plant.

He told BBC Wales he had believed nuclear power to be safe but Fukushima had "changed all that".

Roger Pinney reports.
