Kirsty Williams warns of Stafford scandal risk in Wales

The leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats has claimed there is a crisis in the NHS in Wales and warned of the risk of a scandal similar to Stafford Hospital.

A report last week into failings at Stafford Hospital found years of abuse and neglect had led to the unnecessary deaths of hundreds of patients.

Mrs Williams spoke out after visits to "overwhelmed" A&E and emergency admissions units at Abergavenny's Nevill Hall Hospital.

The health board which runs Nevill Hall Hospital said it had opened extra beds and more staff to help services cope.

Mrs Williams told Vaughan Roderick of BBC Radio Wales about her experiences.
