'Highest ever' demand for foodbanks in Wales

The number of people using foodbanks in Wales has more than doubled in the last year, the service's main provider says.

The Trussell Trust says 35,000 are using the service and it has opened nine new centres across Wales in that time - six of them in north Wales.

One centre in south Wales has fed 350 people since opening 10 weeks ago.

Oxfam Cymru said rising costs, benefit changes and unemployment were creating a "perfect storm" making it impossible for people to feed themselves.

BBC Wales Today's Jordan Davies reports.
