Carwyn Jones' jobs warning over high energy costs

Businesses could take investment and jobs abroad unless high electricity and gas prices are addressed, First Minister Carwyn Jones has said.

He says sectors that use large amounts of energy, including steel and IT, have warned him they are struggling with rising bills.

The UK government urged businesses to have their say in a consultation.

It is designed to reduce the impact of climate change policies on electricity costs for energy-intensive industries.

Political correspondent Tomos Livingstone reports.
