Firms' worries over staff drug-taking in Wales

One in three employers in Wales would not know how to tell if a worker was under the influence of recreational drugs, a survey has found.

The findings come amid growing concern about the level of new-style drugs such as mephedrone in Welsh communities.

Former senior serious crimes officer Martin Tavener said: "This drug is so prevalent and so easy to get hold of."

A conference on Thursday is to offer employers solutions to substance misuse by workers.

BBC Wales' economics correspondent, Sarah Dickins, reports for Wales Today.
