The last remaining Welsh speaker in the village of Cwm yr Eglwys in Sir Benfro has criticised the Welsh Government for its lack of action in tackling the housing crisis.


Speaking to BBC Radio Cymru Norman Thomas who is eighty-eight years old said: "That house over there is on the market for £1.3m. It's ridiculous. The government should have stepped in and stopped these high prices."


Only two of the around fifty properties in Cwm yr Eglwys are occupied year-round.


Thomas said: "All those houses through the valley have been sold to English people [...] it's sad that the Welsh can't afford these houses."
