Singer Bonnie Tyler hopes to rock Eurovision

It may be a dubious honour, but the Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler has been selected to perform for the UK at this year's Eurovision Song Contest. The song she will sing is a new track she says was penned at the dinner table, and it is called Believe in Me.

It is hoped she can improve the UK's dismal recent record of finishing bottom twice in the last five years - and without a win since 1997.

ITV News reporter Lewis Vaughan Jones reports from Wales:
