Swansea waiter tells of 'shock' at restaurant hostage ordeal

A Swansea waiter has told of his shock at being held at gunpoint in the restaurant where he works earlier this year.

Ian Williams told BBC Wales Today that being taken hostage at the Grape and Olive restaurant, at the top of Meridian Tower, had changed his life forever.

His ordeal ended when police stunned gunman Lindsey Edward Coffey with a Taser following a two-hour stand-off.

Mr Williams said his "whole life had passed" before his eyes during the siege.

Natasha Livingstone reports.
