Election 2015: Debate platform for anti-austerity parties

As the seven main party leaders gear-up to go head-to-head in a televised debate, commentators have been lining up to tell viewers what to expect.

Media Wales' chief reporter Martin Shipton told BBC Radio Wales the split between the three female leaders, who are all anti-austerity, and the four men, who all prefer spending cuts to a certain extent, will be interesting to watch play out.

The debate will be televised on ITV from 20:00 BST on Thursday 2 April.
