First Welshman to have number one hit releases final song on St David's Day

The first Welshman to have a UK number one chart hit is hanging up his microphone after 57 years in the business - but not before he releases one last song.

Ricky Valance, from Ynysddu, Caerphilly county, sold more than a million copies of Tell Laura I Love Her, in 1960.

Now aged 80, Valance has released his final record before retirement.

He has dedicated it to the RAF, which he served in for three years before his singing career took off.
