Swansea lifeguard's plan to stop Bangladeshi drownings

Swansea-based RNLI lifeguard Darren Williams is on a mission to prevent children drowning in Bangladesh.

It has one of the highest drowning rates in the world and Mr Williams works with the charity's international programme trying to tackle the problem.

Solutions can often be swimming or safety lessons, but also include less obvious ideas - like providing a free creche to keep children safe.
