Wales snow: Volunteers give 'lifeline' to older people

Fiona Alderman is a service manager for the Newport Good Neighbours Scheme - a befriending service which offers help and support to the over-50s.

She says the work of local volunteers has been a lifeline, both physically and emotionally, for some of the area's most vulnerable people during a week of bitterly cold weather.
