A study has found that a higher proportion of family poverty exists in Wales than anywhere else in the UK.
The survey by the University of London found 30% of families in Wales were living below the poverty line. This compared with 25% in England and 21% in Scotland.
"We have studied people throughout their lives before and the imprint of having lived in poverty in childhood can be traced through school and into adult life, so finding such a lot of disadvantage amongst a big minority of today's children is very disturbing," said Professor Heather Joshi, director of London University's Centre of Longitudinal Studies
It confirms an earlier report on Welsh children . The charity Barnardo's has warned that nearly one in three of Welsh children are living in poverty. One worker for the charity said children in Wales occasionally go without food or heating.
