Betsi Cadwaladr C. diff outbreak manslaughter probe call

Calls have been made for Wales' biggest health board to face a corporate manslaughter investigation after 30 patients died while suffering with a superbug.

From January to May there were 96 cases of C. diff at Glan Clwyd Hospital, Denbighshire, and 30 patients died while suffering with the infection.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board has apologised for the outbreak.

North Wales AM Llyr Huws Gruffydd said he wanted police to examine how the health board responded to warnings.
