Children's Hospital of Wales closed due to rain damage

Wales' only children's hospital has been forced to close after heavy downpours led to significant flooding.

Eighteen patients at Cardiff's £10m Noah's Ark Children's Hospital for Wales were moved to wards at the University Hospital of Wales next door.

One senior doctor called it a "major incident" and said all four floors were affected by Monday's torrential rain.

Dr George Findlay, clinical board director for children and women's services, spoke to Rhodri Lewis about what had happened.
