Welsh assembly faces backlash over James Bond film refusal

Politicians have been shaken and stirred by a decision not to allow the new James Bond film to be shot in the Welsh assembly's debating chamber.

The revelation caused a social media storm with some politicians saying it had been a missed opportunity to showcase Wales and attract visitors.

The decision was made by officials at the Welsh assembly and not the politicians who debate in the Senedd.

Assembly officials said the chamber was "not a drama studio".

BBC Wales arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas reports.
