Three nurses have been charged as part of an inquiry into the alleged falsification of patient records.

Lauro Bertulano, 44, Clare Cahill, 41 and Rebecca Jones, 29, from the Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend, have been charged with wilful neglect.

The women, all from Bridgend, were suspended, along with 10 others, including one from Morriston Hospital, Swansea, last year.

All three are expected to appear before Bridgend Magistrates' Court on 28 July.

The Crown Prosecution Service's Catrin Evans said it was a "complex" and ongoing investigation being carried out by South Wales Police.
