Call to abandon A&E shake-up in south Wales

There are calls for a major shake up of accident and emergency services in south Wales to be abandoned due to the crisis in demand.

The NHS is due to announce a cut in number of specialist A&E departments in south Wales from seven to four or five.

Officials say the current range of services can no longer be provided safely at all hospitals.
