Fatal van rampage by Matthew Tvrdon 'difficult to prevent'

A series of hit-and-runs in Cardiff which killed a mother and injured 20 others would have been difficult to prevent, a report finds.

Matthew Tvrdon, 33, was psychotic and hallucinating when he went on a "journey of mayhem" on 19 October 2012, at five locations.

He had stopped taking his medication, Health Inspectorate Wales (HIW) said.

It identified shortcomings in his care and a lack of monitoring of his condition leading up to the tragedy.

Nick Palit reports.
