University Hospital of Wales patient records dumped

A bag full of confidential patients' records was dumped in a corridor for days at Wales' biggest hospital.

The bag was left on top of a shredding bin for four days on a spinal ward at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.

A hospital worker contacted the BBC to complain over the hospital's records disposal policy.

A hospital spokesman said the matter was being taken seriously and an investigation was under way.
