'Dangerous' Cardiff hospital report prompts MP's inquiry call

An MP has called for an inquiry after surgeons said patients had died waiting for heart surgery at the University Hospital of Wales (UHW) in Cardiff.

A Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) report said the situation was "dangerous" and that children were also suffering due to operation delays.

Cynon Valley MP Ann Clwyd claimed it was the Welsh equivalent of the Stafford Hospital scandal.

Hospital chiefs refuted the comparison and said problems were being tackled.
