Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood insists there needs to be 'consistency' in the way records are compiled on incidents of homophobic bullying in schools. She says that 'unless we have a true picture of exactly what's going on, then it's very difficult to put policies in place to overcome the problem.'
Welsh councils are 'in the dark' over incidents of homophobic bullying at schools, because many don't record them, a Plaid Cymru AM says.
