More than a million rely on cars and vans to get to work

Welsh workers are more reliant than the English when it comes to getting to work in a car or van.

New figures by the RAC Foundation show people are buying and running cars they can't afford in order to get to the office.

In Blaenau Gwent more than 82% of employees depend on a vehicle to get to work, followed by Neath Port Talbot and Torfaen.

The RAC Foundation also says some people are even put off from taking up a job because they just can't afford the commute.

The Welsh Government says it's aiming to create an accessible and affordable transport system that offers a viable alternative to the car.
