Ambulance death mother 'treated worse than an animal'

The daughters of a woman who died waiting in an ambulance queue outside a hospital have told ITV News their mother was "treated worse than an animal".

Sonia Powell was outside Swansea's Morriston Hospital for more than half-an-hour before she died.

Daughter Tracey Evans told Rupert Evelyn, "All her daughters and my dad could not be by mother's sides in her last moments, it's absolutely disgusting the way that my mother was treated."

Health Board 'reviewing all aspects' of ambulance death

The Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board said this afternoon it is reviewing "all aspects" regarding Sonia Powell's death in an ambulance outside Swansea's Morriston Hospital.

The Health Board is reviewing all aspects of what happened and we are currently discussing these with the family.

We can confirm the ambulance with two paramedics on board left Neath Port Talbot Hospital at 2.49pm and arrived at Morriston Hospital at 3.04pm.

The Emergency Department doctor began his assessment of the patient in the ambulance at 3.07pm. A doctor remained with Mrs Powell on the ambulance until she sadly passed away at 3.40pm."

"Yesterday was a busy day for Emergency Departments and this was intensified at Morriston by 20 emergency ambulances arriving and departing within a short space of time," she continued.

Smoking in cars ban would 'reduce health conditions'

Banning smoking in cars when children are present would reduce the number of youngsters suffering from second-hand smoke related health conditions, the Welsh health minister has said.

Our aim is to protect the health of children and young people from the harm associated with exposure to second-hand smoke when travelling in private vehicles.

Changing the law would protect children from the health harms associated with exposure to second-hand smoke in private vehicles, encourage action by smokers to protect children from second-hand smoke and lead to a reduction in health conditions in children caused by exposure to second-hand smoke.

Wales considering banning smoking in cars

A ban on smoking in cars with children in England was backed by MPs in February.

Smokers in Wales who spark up in their car while travelling with an under-18 passenger could soon face a £50 fine, according to the Welsh Government.

A six week consultation on plans to issue on-the-spot fines to drivers caught with a cigarette in their hand was launched today.

The Welsh Government says the ban would protect children from toxic second hand smoke.

"Some people light up in their cars without thinking and believe that opening the window will help disperse the smoke; however it simply blows back into the car," said Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones.

"Children cannot escape from the toxic chemicals contained in second-hand smoke when travelling in vehicles."

The march is unified really in its opposition to what Nato is doing in various parts of the world, from Ukraine to Afghanistan. They are concerned about issues in Iraq, in Iran and in Syria.

We think there are probably around about 500 protesters, and the plan is when they reach the Celtic Manor, about three or four protesters will be allowed to hand over a petition which will then be taken to the summit itself.
