Swansea's Claire Dyer forced to move to Brighton unit

A Swansea family has lost its bid to prevent a health board moving their autistic daughter to a specialist unit in Brighton.

Claire Dyer, 20, will have to move from the Swansea unit she has lived at since April 2012 after Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board's decision was upheld by a judge.

Her family obtained an injunction blocking the move but it was overruled at a hearing on Friday.

The family say they are "heartbroken".

Presenter Kayley Thomas spoke to Wayne Crocker, director of Mencap Cymru, on Radio Wales' Good Morning Wales programme.
