Wales begin free morning-after pill


Wales has become the first part of the UK to make the morning-after pill available without charge from pharmacies, including to some girls aged under 16.

The morning after pill will continue to cost around £26 at chemists in other parts of the UK.

Mark Griffiths, owner of a pharmacy in Merthyr Tydfil and Dr Andrew Dearden, a senior member of the British Medical Association (BMA), discuss the controversial move.
