Garth Celyn Trust: Questions raised over historic land appeal

An investigation by BBC Wales has learnt that one of the key figures behind a cash appeal to buy historic land at Abergwyngregyn in Gwynedd is the mother of the people selling it.

The Garth Celyn Trust says it needs to raise £180,000 to acquire 24 acres (10 hectares) where some historians claim Welsh prince Llywelyn the Great built his palace.

The actress Catherine Zeta Jones is among those reported to have given a donation.

But an expert has said he would be wary about putting money in.

Roger Pinney reports.
