Betsi Cadwaladr C. diff outbreak manslaughter inquiry call

Wales' biggest health board is facing calls for a corporate manslaughter investigation over a Clostridium difficile (C. diff) outbreak.

From January to May there were 96 cases of C. diff at Glan Clwyd Hospital, Denbighshire, and 30 patients died while suffering with the infection.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board has apologised for the outbreak.

But North Wales AM Llyr Gruffydd said he wanted police to examine how the health board responded to warnings.
