Welsh budget cuts of £1.5bn over four years predicted

Nearly £1.5bn of cuts could be made to the Welsh government's budget over the next four years, a leading think tank has warned.

The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) said this would be on top of a near 10% budget cut since 2010.

It also revealed the Welsh NHS had faced far deeper cuts than its counterparts in England or Scotland.

The Welsh government said the report showed the challenges faced since UK government budget cuts in 2010.

Political reporter James Williams reports.
