Lee Eames, 37, of Cardiff was jailed for theft of a bicycle and breaching a Community Order. On his release Eames will be banned from entering Cardiff city centre unless he has a job centre appointment.

Police also say he's not to be seen with a bike - unless he has registered it with them.

Eames is responsible for a high number of cycle thefts in central Cardiff and by issuing the three year CBO cyclists should be able to lock the bikes up knowing that one of our key offenders is behind bars.

'Score on the door' for hospital's food is just 1

Wales’s biggest health board has been told a “major improvement is necessary” after getting a food hygiene rating of only one, out of five, at a community hospital.

Denbigh Infirmary in north Wales got a score of 1 out of 5.

An inspection at Denbigh Infirmary in north Wales found that major improvement was needed in the system:

to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, evidence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety officer has confidence that standards will be maintained in future.

– Inspector's report

The rating is even worse than those of two for the major Glan Clwyd Hospital, near Rhyl, also run by Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board.
