Concern over mental health detentions by police in Wales
Calls have been made for a reduction in the number of people taken into police custody with mental health problems.
Figures obtained by BBC Wales showed a 32% increase in such "section 136" detentions in the last year by South Wales Police.
But North Wales Police saw an 80% drop after an agreement between police and doctors.
The South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner is to work with other forces to see what can be learned.
Roger Pinney reports.
