Kris Wade: Questions over handling of sex assault claims

A man who murdered his neighbour in a sexually motivated attack had been sacked from his job after allegations of sexual assault, a health board has revealed.

Kris Wade, 37, is serving at least 21 years after admitting killing Christine James, 65, at her Cardiff Bay flat.

Allegations were made by patients with learning disabilities in 2012 and 2013.

Police investigated the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg (ABMU) Health Board support worker but found insufficient evidence.

North Wales AM Mark Isherwood, who sits on the Welsh Assembly's cross party group on disability, said it was important to understand what credibility was given to the patients' claims against Wade.
