Warning over safety standards after rafting death

An MP says tourists should be wary of travelling to Turkey unless there's proof that safety standards have improved.

It follows the death of nine year old Cerys Potter, from the Vale of Glamorgan, who drowned in a whitewater rafting accident in 2010.

Four men were jailed in Turkey over her death, and the Turkish authorities say rules have now been tightened.

Alun Cairns MP, for the Vale of Glamorgan, is encouraging people to consider health and safety when travelling abroad.
