Cardiff inquest as two men die after 'infected' kidney op

Two men died after having a kidney transplant from the same donor whose organs were allegedly infected with a parasitic worm, solicitors have said.

An inquest will be held into the deaths of Robert Stuart, from Cardiff, and Darren Hughes, of Bridgend, next week.

Lawyers for their families say they hope to find answers on why their deaths happened.

The donor of the kidneys also died from the same infection, according to solicitors Irwin Mitchell.

Health correspondent Owain Clarke told Nicola Smith more on BBC Wales Today.
