Four child minders who work for a Wrexham care service have had their registrations suspended after an investigation was launched.

The Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) announced the action after an inspection of Blythswood Childcare on 28 July.

Parents were told to collect their children, with the service unable to operate "until further notice".

CCSIW said safety of the children is its "top priority".

It described the suspension of the child minders who run the service as "a neutral step" pending the outcome of its investigation.
