Cardiff church 'left to deteriorate' before collapse

Questions must be asked about how a derelict church collapsed leading to a man's death, Cardiff council's leader has said.

The man was trapped under piles of rubble after the church in Splott, Cardiff, crumbled at about 14:50 BST on Tuesday.

Two other people escaped from the building with minor injuries.

Mr Thomas said the church, which is being demolished, had been "left for decades" to deteriorate ahead of the incident.
