UK's oldest mayor on Labour stronghold

In Wales, the constituency of Torfaen - and Pontypool, which preceded it - has voted Labour for 99 years.

But, in an area where so many voted for Brexit, will the party's stronghold be broken?

Phyllis Roberts, 93, is the UK's oldest mayor - representing the town of Blaenavon.

She has supported Labour all her life.
