A premature baby's ventilator was removed too soon by hospital staff, his parents have told an inquest into his death.

Rohan Rhodes from Narberth, Pembrokeshire, was born 14 weeks early at Singleton Hospital, Swansea, in 2012 and was transferred to St Michael's Hospital, Bristol, for surgery.

Alex and Bronwyn Rhodes told the coroner's court near Bristol that Rohan's feeding tubes were inserted "aggressively" and caused him pain.

Their son died aged five weeks.

Paul Heaney reports.
