Is farmland cost growth pricing out young farmers?

There are warnings that the growth in the cost of Welsh farmland is pricing out many farmers.

The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors says the rise is 'staggering', and has been driven by the ongoing surge in demand from both farmers and investors.

The average price is around £7,250 per acre - but there are fears that young farmers in particular are missing out on the market.

Daniel Maggs, a young farmer from Monmouthshire, told ITV News how the rise is affecting him.
