Bafta Cymru award an 'honour' for Terry Jones, says son

Monty Python's Terry Jones has received a standing ovation at the Bafta Cymru awards for his outstanding contribution to television and film.

Jones, of Colwyn Bay, Conwy, announced last month that he has a severe type of dementia.

Fellow Python star Michael Palin paid tribute to his "most wonderful friend" before presenting him with the award.

Jones told the crowd to "quieten down" before his son told the crowd it was a "great honour".
