Morriston hospital ambulance death woman 'let down'

The family of a 73-year-old woman who died on Wednesday in the back of an ambulance outside a hospital in Swansea says they have been let down by a health system that is struggling to cope.

Sonia Powell, who had a suspected heart attack, was said to have waited "at least an hour" but health officials said the wait was 30-40 minutes. An investigation is underway.

The Welsh health minister admits the NHS in Wales is a system under pressure.
