Cae Trehern's family raise rugby concussion concerns after death

The family of a former rugby player who killed himself earlier this year are urging other players and doctors to be more aware of the long-term side effects of concussion.

Cae Trayhern, 37, was captain of Pontypool for many years but he developed serious mental health problems.

His family feel that brain trauma completely changed his personality after he retired in 2013, saying he was concussed at least 11 times in his 20-year career.

This week an inquest ruled he died by suicide. Paul Heaney reports.
