Care home residents 'malnourished' - commissioner

Some care home residents are becoming malnourished because not enough thought is going into the food they are given, says Wales' older people's commissioner.

Sarah Rochira told BBC Wales the situation was "unacceptable" after a review of 100 care homes.

In one case, she said an elderly man was left living off just mashed potato.

She called for an increased focus on providing nutritionally balanced meals and choice for vulnerable people.

Paul Heaney reports from a home near Pontypool, where residents are happy with their food.
