Urgent cancer waiting time targets missed in Wales

Welsh government waiting time targets for urgent cancer cases are still being missed, despite assurances they would be met by March.

Its target is for 95% of patients to see a specialist in 62 days, but the latest figure is 84%.

Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board had 69.9% of patients start treatment in time while Aneurin Bevan achieved 98%.

The Welsh government said most patients are seen within the target.

Reporter James Williams told Claire Summers the response to the figures was one of "collective disappointment".
