People are being asked to avoid the emergency departments at two hospitals because they are "extremely busy".

Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health board said there had been a high level of emergencies over Christmas and New Year at Morriston in Swansea and the Princess of Wales in Bridgend.

It said staffing difficulties in some areas had caused delays in the system.

The board encouraged people to use the minor injury units at Neath Port Talbot and Singleton hospitals.
