Wales declares climate emergency

The Welsh government has declared a climate emergency, joining Nicola Sturgeon and a raft of UK councils.

Environment minister Lesley Griffiths made the announcement today alongside environment ministers from Scotland.

Griffiths said she hoped the declaration would “trigger a wave of action at home and internationally.”
