Welcome to Wales Today, our top stories:

The bird flu outbreak, the chief vet outlines further

:00:00.:00:00.

restrictions for farmers and poultry owners.

:00:00.:00:14.

I guess we should not be too is a prized given that we know wild birds

:00:15.:00:20.

across Great Britain have become infected by this virus.

:00:21.:00:33.

How will Wales work after Brexit?

:00:34.:00:35.

paying to be in the single market but outside the EU.

:00:36.:00:46.

Staying out of the EU has involved compromises for Norway, Carlin Jones

:00:47.:00:52.

is here to find out whether it is an example Britain should follow.

:00:53.:00:53.

Elderly people say they were left without toilets, or heating,

:00:54.:00:56.

tonight the calls for a council to dump one of its

I did not have a toilet, I had to go to my friends to use the toilet.

than we're planting, the warning for the future

:01:11.:01:13.

And Paul Clement watches Swansea's win against Crystal Palace,

:01:14.:01:21.

hours after being confirmed as the new head coach.

:01:22.:01:30.

Restrictions on keeping poultry in Wales have been extended

:01:31.:01:37.

for another 7 weeks in an effort to stop avian flu from spreading.

:01:38.:01:40.

It comes after chickens and ducks with bird flu were discovered

:01:41.:01:43.

at a property in Carmarthenshire earlier this week,

:01:44.:01:46.

the same strain found in a wild duck in Llanelli last month.

:01:47.:01:51.

The H5-N8 infection was first found in wild birds,

:01:52.:01:54.

and is mainly spread by direct contact between

:01:55.:01:57.

The restrictions mean all poultry have to be kept indoors -

:01:58.:02:03.

The all-Wales prevention zone will remain in place

:02:04.:02:07.

Nice to meet you. The process is you have to clean off any gunk on your

:02:08.:02:26.

Boots in clean water, and then if you could dip them into the

:02:27.:02:29.

disinfectant that will get rid of any of the virus. Elaine is taking

:02:30.:02:35.

bio-security very seriously, usually about 100 prize chickens roam free

:02:36.:02:42.

here, but since the recent case of avian few -- avian flu she has kept

:02:43.:02:45.

them in makeshift pens and volatiles and the greenhouse and they have to

:02:46.:02:49.

stay here until the end of February at least. For me until your lifetime

:02:50.:02:54.

poultry keeper it is devastating, really. It is on par with foot and

:02:55.:02:59.

mouth. I have lived through two foot and mouth outbreaks in poultry as is

:03:00.:03:03.

the same. These birds are irreplaceable. They are, a lot of

:03:04.:03:08.

them, the result of two lifetimes of reading. I can go out and buy

:03:09.:03:12.

another bunch of birds to replace them or had another bunch. They are

:03:13.:03:19.

gone. The extension of restrictions on keeping poultry comes after a

:03:20.:03:24.

case of avian flu was discovered, yesterday a domestic flock of

:03:25.:03:27.

chickens and ducks have to be culled. A sequel on that protection

:03:28.:03:32.

zone has been set up around the area as well as the chemical mutter

:03:33.:03:34.

surveillance on which aims to stop the disease from spreading. The same

:03:35.:03:39.

strain of bird flu was also discovered if Llanelli before

:03:40.:03:45.

Christmas, at another turkey farm in Lincolnshire. Infected birds have

:03:46.:03:47.

arrived in Great Britain, we know that from the findings in Wales

:03:48.:03:53.

England and Scotland now, and we can control any of that. But what we can

:03:54.:03:57.

do is everything possible to protect our own domestic flock and bringing

:03:58.:04:02.

them indoors is the best way to do that. Ian Williams is a poultry farm

:04:03.:04:09.

and can have up to 200,000 chickens in his sixth sense here. Cameras

:04:10.:04:12.

were not allowed onto the farm but has to film from a distance as he is

:04:13.:04:17.

taking every precaution possible to stop avian flu reaching the site. We

:04:18.:04:22.

are only allowing essential visitors onto the site so we have to have a

:04:23.:04:27.

few deliveries for the chickens and Solares after doing essential

:04:28.:04:31.

deliveries like that are allowed on site but no other visitors. It is a

:04:32.:04:37.

massive risk to me that my livelihood will be affected if I got

:04:38.:04:42.

avian flu on this farm. Those who keep more than 50 birds are required

:04:43.:04:47.

to sign up to a poultry register but tonight the Welsh government is

:04:48.:04:49.

urging those with fewer birds to sign up, too. It is said they should

:04:50.:04:54.

look out for any symptoms which includes birds not laying eggs or

:04:55.:04:58.

eating or any swelling on the birds but they have reiterated there is no

:04:59.:05:04.

risk to human health. This strain of avian flu which we call 85 and eight

:05:05.:05:09.

has never been reported in a human, there have been no cases in humans

:05:10.:05:12.

and that is supported by Public Health Wales evidence, however it is

:05:13.:05:17.

very appealing, highly pathogenic to her birds. That is why it is very

:05:18.:05:23.

important that we get on top of the disease but in terms of public

:05:24.:05:29.

health this is of negligible risk. With news tonight that over 1

:05:30.:05:32.

million ducks will be culled in France over the coming months Elaine

:05:33.:05:37.

fears. A -- full-scale outbreak could come from across the Channel.

:05:38.:05:43.

The advice is to disinfect and keep movement to a minimum if you come

:05:44.:05:45.

into contact with wild birds. Norway isn't in the European Union -

:05:46.:05:48.

but it has a trading The First Minister Carwyn Jones

:05:49.:05:51.

has flown to Norway's capital Oslo tonight -

:05:52.:05:57.

to understand how the EU Our reporter Daniel

:05:58.:05:59.

Davies is in Oslo. He's been looking at

:06:00.:06:03.

Norway's relationship Is this how our relationship with

:06:04.:06:07.

the EU will be after Brexit? It's not a member of

:06:08.:06:15.

the European Union. But trades freely with Europe

:06:16.:06:20.

as a member of the single market. It has to pay financially

:06:21.:06:24.

for that privilege - and must accept the right of EU

:06:25.:06:26.

citizens to live and work here. It also must accept EU laws -

:06:27.:06:32.

but has little say Norway's single market agreement

:06:33.:06:34.

doesn't include fisheries - the country's biggest industry

:06:35.:06:41.

after oil and gas. They've tried to protect it

:06:42.:06:44.

from European competition, but it faces pressure,

:06:45.:06:46.

from countries like Poland. And Carwyn Jones says the same

:06:47.:06:50.

is true for Wales' economy. Those who want the softest

:06:51.:06:57.

Brexit possible look Others might think Norway's

:06:58.:06:59.

relationship with the EU is still too close for Brexit

:07:00.:07:06.

Britain. Dan, what is the First Minister

:07:07.:07:19.

hoping to wear? We are used to seeing him overseas

:07:20.:07:24.

on trade missions trying to encourage foreign businesses to

:07:25.:07:27.

invest in Wales, this time he said he is here to learn about Bobby's

:07:28.:07:30.

relationship with the EU, he has meetings lined up with government

:07:31.:07:36.

ministers, not the Prime Minister or Foreign Minister but junior

:07:37.:07:39.

ministers to talk about Brexit over the next three days and you'll be

:07:40.:07:43.

hearing about those compromises that Norway has made and he said that the

:07:44.:07:50.

single market is vital not just to Norway but to Wales and we should be

:07:51.:07:58.

making colonisers, two, including an immigration and if people have a job

:07:59.:08:00.

then they should continue to have the right to work here after Brexit.

:08:01.:08:03.

In Norway by and large people are happy with that situation but

:08:04.:08:08.

whether they would be in Wales, that remains to be seen.

:08:09.:08:12.

And Carwyn Jones has been giving his reaction to the resignation of

:08:13.:08:20.

Britain's ambassador to the EU. Yes, Ivan Rogers, Carlin Jones said

:08:21.:08:24.

he met with him last week and that he was completely neutral and that

:08:25.:08:28.

your point diplomats to be told what you need to know, not what you want

:08:29.:08:33.

to hear. This follows a row about why Ivan Rogers has had to leave his

:08:34.:08:38.

job. But Carwyn Jones, I think his visit here though the underlying the

:08:39.:08:45.

fact that it is more than six months after the referendum of use utility

:08:46.:08:51.

options for the future and with negotiations due to start it is not

:08:52.:08:52.

clear what the future holds. A former soldier from

:08:53.:08:54.

Carmarthenshire has been sentenced after trying to travel to Syria

:08:55.:08:56.

to fight against Robert Clark from Pembrey

:08:57.:08:59.

:09:00.:09:01.

for a year, and sentenced to 50 hours of unpaid work for failing

an offence under the Terrorism Act. A development company has pulled out

of Pembroke Dock marina Conygar Investment Company

:09:20.:09:22.

which looks at its accounts -- the scheme had planning for a

large scheme with cinema and restaurants, company cigarette in

the investment as the cost of building the marina was now too

:09:42.:09:42.

high. A teacher from Llandudno -

:09:43.:09:45.

who downloaded indecent images of children has been jailed

:09:46.:09:47.

for eight months. Mark Haslock, who taught at Ysgol y

:09:48.:09:49.

Grango near Wrexham, was also ordered to register

:09:50.:09:52.

as a sex offender for Staff in the sterilisation and x-ray

:09:53.:09:54.

departments at some hospitals in South Wales are due

:09:55.:10:00.

to go on strike. The union Unison says the action

:10:01.:10:03.

will affect non-emergency surgery at Morriston and Singleton

:10:04.:10:06.

in Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Princess of Wales in Bridgend

:10:07.:10:13.

where Caroline evans is tonight. It involves staff from the x ray

:10:14.:10:16.

departments and from sterilisation and disinfection units,

:10:17.:10:26.

these are the people who decontaminate

:10:27.:10:29.

hospitals and equipment. They're taking action claiming

:10:30.:10:36.

they are being paid less than people doing the same jobs elsewhere

:10:37.:10:40.

in Wales and they are warning that strike action WILL seriously disrupt

:10:41.:10:43.

non-emergency surgery. Unison says its been

:10:44.:10:51.

putting their case since 2014 and the staff are angry

:10:52.:11:00.

that they have not been listened to, some of them, they say,

:11:01.:11:03.

are losing nearly ?2,000 pounds some of them, they say,

:11:04.:11:08.

are losing nearly ?2,000 a year compared with colleagues

:11:09.:11:11.

in other hospitals. They are keen to say that the board

:11:12.:11:14.

does value all its staff and has been working with the union

:11:15.:11:21.

to resolve this. They say a meeting is planned

:11:22.:11:23.

for early next week to continue those discussions,

:11:24.:11:32.

but in the meantime they want to reassure patients

:11:33.:11:38.

that they will be working to ensure that any disruption

:11:39.:11:40.

is kept to a minimum The earliest date posible for any

:11:41.:11:42.

such strike action is January 18th. The brother of a murdered private

detective from Llanfrecha near Cwmbran has urged the prime

of the Leveson Inquiry Daniel Morgan's family believe

:11:58.:12:00.

he was about to expose police corruption before he was killed 30

:12:01.:12:06.

years ago, a judge-led panel of experts is currently

:12:07.:12:10.

looking into his death. Alistair Morgan says a statutory

:12:14.:12:17.

police and private Because a panel does not have

:12:18.:12:32.

statutory powers it can sip you know what this is, it can't order them to

:12:33.:12:40.

give evidence or disclose papers. -- it can't subpoena witnesses. I

:12:41.:12:47.

thought that lesson to would be available as a kind of backstop if

you like. Police watchdogs are investigating

months. The contractor has been accused of residence -- by residents

for poor workmanship with something they have been accused

dust and destruction of fitting this kitchen. After five weeks and she

said she returned to camp and dust everywhere, electrical work she said

:14:11.:14:13.

she was not told about, Johnson finished with parts missing. She

:14:14.:14:17.

claims the freezer and blogs, all this food went to waste. It is the

:14:18.:14:22.

contract is because the problem. The thing the company should continue

:14:23.:14:28.

working for the Council? Yum are absolutely not, but that is how they

:14:29.:14:35.

treat people, -- absolutely not. This is how they treat people. My

:14:36.:14:38.

mother has been so stressed out throughout this process, and it is

:14:39.:14:42.

not just my mother that they have treated like that. Neighbours have

:14:43.:14:47.

similar stories. I had a flight this week, the drainage was not done

:14:48.:14:53.

properly. Christina is 75 and visually impaired, she said she had

:14:54.:14:57.

weeks of broken promises but when her kitchen and bathroom were

:14:58.:15:01.

refurbished and work finally did start... Chaos. They did not have a

:15:02.:15:07.

toilet, have to go to my friends to use the toilet,... Along with that

:15:08.:15:17.

for? Over a week. The council uses a number of different contractors. I

:15:18.:15:24.

went to the council which any statement told me you were concerned

:15:25.:15:29.

about the complaints being made here and it in turn would make -- would

:15:30.:15:33.

raise them with the contractor then she as a matter of urgency. It also

:15:34.:15:39.

pointed out that with thousands of homes being refurbished that the

:15:40.:15:44.

concerns you are not representative of the majority.

They park all over the place to walk up Pen y fan -

now the national trust wants to charge.

:15:55.:15:55.

And the gritters are out in many parts of the country.

:15:56.:15:58.

A sharp frost tonight with temperatures falling as low

:15:59.:16:00.

The Welsh timber industry which implies more than 11,000 people is

:16:01.:16:17.

at risk unless more trees are planted, that is according to one of

:16:18.:16:21.

the UK's largest producers, Clifford Jones. Natural resources Wales

:16:22.:16:28.

manager Forrest city are confident about the future of the industry.

:16:29.:16:34.

This is a question as much about what our woodlands are for as it is

:16:35.:16:37.

for how many trees have been planted. The vast swathes of conifer

:16:38.:16:45.

forest put the not as wildlife habitats but as an industrial

:16:46.:16:49.

resource, harvested now for everything from construction to

:16:50.:16:52.

garden furniture. Clifford Jones yard is where much of this ends up.

:16:53.:16:59.

This business produces the half-million fence posts every year.

:17:00.:17:06.

The waste wood, they tell me there is no waste, that the sawdust gets

:17:07.:17:11.

turned into woodchip for boilers. Here the employee 50 of the 11,000

:17:12.:17:17.

Welsh timber industry workers. What is happening here is we take the

:17:18.:17:23.

temper that is going through our line and what we do is be push it

:17:24.:17:27.

through the machine round there. -- we take the timber. Richard is the

:17:28.:17:32.

third generation of his family to run the company and he is concerned

:17:33.:17:36.

that of material is diminishing at a time when demand is rising. Over the

:17:37.:17:40.

years we have harvested more than we have replaced, and so because of

:17:41.:17:44.

that it is declining and it is declining at a rapid rate and since

:17:45.:17:51.

1970s we have not kept up the pace, the amount of stuff we have taken

:17:52.:17:56.

away, and that is the big issue. To be sure, our woodlands is changing.

:17:57.:18:01.

Conifer forests are being filled as they mature and large disease has

:18:02.:18:04.

speeded up the process of cleaning. There has been a policy change, more

:18:05.:18:09.

native leaves like Coke are being planted. Natural resources Wales to

:18:10.:18:13.

cover the management of much of the woodland from the old Forestry

:18:14.:18:18.

Commission. We were hit hard in Wales by the disease in large the

:18:19.:18:22.

last couple of years and that has meant we have had to sell large

:18:23.:18:25.

numbers of large trees and as a result of that we have been looking

:18:26.:18:29.

to plan mixed forests rather than lying on single species which are

:18:30.:18:34.

more resilient to disease. The Welsh government has plans to create more

:18:35.:18:39.

woodland but up until now the response from landowners has been

:18:40.:18:44.

reluctant. But post-Brexit we have an amazing opportunity to introduce

:18:45.:18:51.

a new land use policy which will encourage landowners including

:18:52.:18:55.

farmers to plant the right trees in the right place. But at Clifford

:18:56.:18:59.

Jones they say the broadleaves being planted in this forest are not

:19:00.:19:03.

suitable to be turned into for example fence posts. Natural

:19:04.:19:07.

resources Wales say they are confident about the future of Welsh

:19:08.:19:09.

timber, the industry is not so sure. It's one of Wales' natural wonders -

:19:10.:19:13.

visited by hundreds of thousand of people every year -

:19:14.:19:16.

but should you have to pay to park The National Trust think so,

:19:17.:19:19.

and could charge motorists Just a smattering of the white stuff

on the slopes of Pen Y Fan today. for former Cardiff Devils Ice Hockey

:19:24.:19:33.

player Jeff Smith. Expanding it would be brilliant

:19:34.:19:55.

however I think the funding that could be done in a different way,

:19:56.:20:00.

perhaps with donations. Personally if I came along I would donate every

:20:01.:20:04.

time I climbed, but I think if you put four or ?5 on a charge and then

:20:05.:20:08.

it does, it could potentially deter people from coming along.

:20:09.:20:09.

There are plans to increase the number

:20:10.:20:15.

They want to avoid this during heavy snow.

:20:16.:20:18.

I agree that the car park should be enlarged but not sure we should be

:20:19.:20:34.

charging people ?5 a head. That is what I'm concerned about.

:20:35.:20:35.

National Trust rangers who work on the mountain say

:20:36.:20:39.

363,000 people passed through this gate last year - and there are 15

:20:40.:20:42.

5,000 visited the mountain on Bank Holiday Monday alone.

:20:43.:20:48.

But is the potential parking cost too steep?

:20:49.:20:55.

We hope that people are supportive of us and our aim is to ensure

:20:56.:21:03.

access and realise that the funds raised would be going directly

:21:04.:21:07.

towards the conservation efforts in the area.

:21:08.:21:12.

for motorists to park sensibly - here,

The funeral has taken place of the former Welsh Rugby Captain

:21:19.:21:23.

John Gwilliam who died aged ninety three.

:21:24.:21:26.

His coffin was brought to the English Methodist Church

in Llanfairfechan topped with the first of his

John Gwilliam is the only man to captain Wales to two Grand Slams

:21:32.:21:37.

and he also played in the 1953 Welsh win over the All Blacks.

Football and Paul Clement is said to have made a real contribution

:21:45.:21:47.

to Swansea City's win against Crystal Palace last night -

:21:48.:21:49.

despite only being confirmed as the new head coach a few

:21:50.:21:52.

The Swans are now one point away from relegation safety -

:21:53.:21:56.

After just three wins in 19 games with the new head coach watching

:21:57.:22:11.
