Welsh Ambulance Service misses 999 target again

Missed target times for ambulance emergency calls can be turned around but there is "no imminent fix", warns the new head of the service in Wales.

The target is for 65% of ambulances to reach high priority calls inside eight minutes but that has been missed for most of the last two years.

September's figures are out next week but BBC Wales can reveal a slight improvement up to 58.9%.

Interim chief executive Tracy Myhill said the target needs to be looked at.
