Welsh unions slam stock scheme

Carwyn Jones, Welsh Assembly's rural affairs minister, heard first hand about the problems experienced by farmers when he visited Nick and Kyra Somerfield's hill farm at Bethlehem in Carmarthenshire.

"Quite simply, it has been a failure so far," Mr Somerfield told him.
