The NHS in Wales has not been affected by the cyber attack which has hit large parts of the service in England and Scotland.

A major incident has been declared as staff cannot access patient data, which has been scrambled by ransomware.

There is no evidence patient data has been compromised, NHS Digital has said.

A Welsh Government spokesperson said: "We have had no reported cyber incidents affecting NHS Wales but are monitoring the situation closely."

It comes amid reports of cyber-attacks affecting organisations worldwide.
