Can a witch really curse somebody who refuses to assist them?

That certainly seems to be the case in this old Welsh folk tale in which Bethan Jones - the accused witch - is blamed with striking down a woman.

But is it really evil witchcraft, or is it all in the victim's mind? And if it a real curse, how can it be broken?

Join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) who goes in search of clues on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast.
