Pembrokeshire council child care concern action call

A council accused of failures in safeguarding children should now be placed in special measures, according to the schools inspectorate Estyn.

Advisors were sent to Pembrokeshire after claims that children were locked in a padded "time-out" room.

In a separate report, the auditor general has called for the Welsh government to intervene over concerns about the "speed and rigour" of change.

Pembrokeshire council says it is committed to resolving serious issues.

Abigail Neal reports.
