"Significant" efforts are being made to secure the future of 24-hour A&E cover at a Pembrokeshire hospital.

Hywel Dda health board said it is making progress with its work on maintaining the service at Withybush General Hospital in Haverfordwest.

This comes after a document leaked online suggested it would be cut.

Medical director Sue Fish said: "We are pleased to say that good progress is being made in relation to nurse and consultant appointments."
