North to set new world record in tomorrow's comeback

Wales star George North will set a new world record when he makes his rugby comeback in tomorrow's Test match against Ireland.

At 23 years and 138 days, Northampton wing North will become the youngest player in rugby union Test match history to reach 50 caps for his country.

North made his Wales debut against South Africa in November 2010, scoring two tries, and what has proved to be a stellar career now hits another notable landmark.

He returns to action for his first appearance since late March. He suffered three concussions last season, but is now fully fit.


Three nurses struck off for Caerphilly care home failings

Three nurses have been struck off after failing to provide adequate care at a Caerphilly care home.

The nurses worked at Brithdir Nursing Home near Bargoed - one of six homes investigated as part of Gwent Police's £11.6m Operation Jasmine into the deaths of 63 elderly people.

A Nursing and Midwifery Council panel heard the actions of five nurses at the home contributed to the deaths of some vulnerable residents.

Nurses Daphne Richards, Tembakazi Moyana and Rachel Tanta were all struck off.

Manager Susan Greening was given a caution order for four years, while nurse Beverley Mock received a suspension order.

The care home is now under new management.
