Sea-threatened Fairbourne residents seek answers

Residents whose village will be "abandoned to the sea" say they could become climate change refugees.

Sea defences at Fairbourne in Gwynedd will stop being maintained from the 2050s.

Residents may have to leave the village before this happens.

Gwynedd council said it has held engagement events to keep residents involved, but does not have a say over some of the decisions affecting them.
