Patients' confidential files were stored on top of cabinets on a hospital corridor within sight of outpatients and visitors, an inspection found.

Healthcare Inspectorate Wales said bulky files had been too big to be filed in a trolley on the gynaecology ward at Glan Clwyd Hospital in Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire.

Hospital bosses have given assurances that action has been taken since the unannounced visit.
