Cardiff hit-and-runs: NHS review after Tvrdon case

The man responsible for a series of hit and runs in Cardiff last year will be sentenced later.

Matthew Tvrdon, has paranoid schizophrenia, killed Karina Menzies and injured 17 other people within half-an-hour at several locations in the city on one afternoon last October.

Exactly a year earlier he was discharged from psychiatric services because he was not considered a danger to himself or anyone else.

An investigation by the local health board is currently taking place, and the Welsh government says it is considering referring the case for an independent review.

Jonathan Morgan, former chair of the assembly's health committee who is now an independent health consultant, tells Good Morning Wales presenter Oliver Hides the case is 'very unusual'.
