Betsi Cadwaladr mental health wards review call

Calls have been made for an immediate review of all mental health wards run by Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board following concerns at two units.

In May, a report into the Tawel Fan ward at Bodelwyddan's Glan Clwyd Hospital found patients were kept "like animals".

On Tuesday, a new allegation was made on BBC Wales' Week In Week Out over the death of a patient at Wrexham Maelor Hospital's Gwanwyn ward.

Matthew Richards reports.
