Link to BBC Wales

"Environment Minister John Griffiths says the Welsh Government 'means business' on the carrier bag levy.

"He said shopkeepers who do not comply will be fined, although a lighter touch will be taken with enforcement in the first three months.

"Shoppers in Wales will be charged at least 5p for single use bags from 1 October. It is the first UK nation to introduce the charge."
