An inquest is due to be held later into how two men died after receiving allegedly infected donor kidneys at the University Hospital of South Wales.

Robert Stuart from Cardiff, and Darren Hughes from Bridgend both had transplants last year, but died just over two weeks later.

Post-mortem examinations on both men revealed they died from an infection caused by a parasitic worm. The inquest is due to take place at Cardiff Coroner's Court.
