The coroner taking the inquest into the deaths of two men who died after infected kidney transplants at the University of Wales last December has retired to consider his verdict.
He told the families of the two men in court this morning that he will be reaching a narrative conclusion, but he wants to reflect on all the evidence before beginning his summing up.
Darren Hughes, who was 47 and from Bridgend,and Robert Stuart who was 67 and from Cardiff, both died from meningitis which had come from their kidney donor. The illness was caused by a rare parasitic worm, more commonly found in horses.
The two Welshmen were the first human-to-human recorded cases of the parasite in medical history.
The inquest into the deaths of two men who both died after having a kidney transplant from the same donor whose organs were allegedly infected with a parasitic worm, will finish today.
Robert Stuart, 67, from Cardiff and Darren Hughes, 42, of Bridgend both died of an infection known as halicephalobus, which lives in soil and is often found in horses.
There have only been five reported cases in the world of people diagnosed with the infection.
The solicitors for the families of the two men say they are desperately seeking answers following the deaths.
A consultant in microbiology and infectious diseases has told an inquest that it would have been "unreasonable" to think a parasitic infection that killed two men could have been diagnosed.
Brendon Healy said there hadn't been any human survivors of the infection and everything had been done to save Darren Hughes and Robert Stuart, who died after receiving kidney transplants.
It was only months later, after the men died and after calling experts from across the globe, that the cause of the infection was discovered.
Cambridge professor Christopher Watson, who compiled a report into the incident, said that if he had been in the position of surgeon Dr Argiris Asderakis - who did the transplant - he would have made a different decision.
I am quite sure that he had the best intentions and there was no intention to cause any harm. I can understand how he came to his risk/benefit equation. But it's not the same equation I would had come to.
The inquest is expected to conclude tomorrow.
The Chancellor has unveiled his last Autumn Statement before next year's General Election, with some significant headlines for Wales.Read the full story ›
Welsh Liberal Democrats leader Kirsty Williams says she is "delighted" at measures announced in the Autumn Statement - including stamp duty reform and the full devolution of business rates - which she says will benefit Wales.
Plaid Cymru MP Jonathan Edwards says there was little good news for Wales in the Autumn Statement. And he says that moves to devolve power to Scotland and Northern Ireland could leave Wales behind.
On the day of the Chancellor's Autumn Statement, the Shadow Welsh Secretary Owen Smith says the 'terrible legacy' of the coalition government in Wales is more low-paid insecure work.
The inquest into the deaths of two men who died after receiving kidney transplants at the University Hospital of South Wales has resumed this afternoon.
A Cambridge University transplant surgeon who turned down the infected kidneys on the night they were offered told the inquest that without the donor's cause of death he didn't risk using them.
Professor Christopher Watson said he would only have considered using them on someone who was "about to die very soon".
The donor had made no improvement on anti-bacterial and anti-viral drugs which was concerning so that is why I didn't accept them.
He had been in hospital for nine days and died so that showed there was no improvement. There was no diagnosis.
However, Watson admitted that many surgeons would use organs from a donor who had died from an unknown cause of infection and that "embracing risk" led to more lives saved through transplants.
He also said the parasitic worm infection could not have been foreseen and he doubted that it would ever be seen again.
The inquest continues.
Heath officials said figures on children's use of e-cigarettes demonstrated concerns that using the devices could become a nicotine "gateway".
These latest findings shine further light on the potential impact of e-cigarettes on our children and young people.
I am concerned the use of e-cigarettes may act as a gateway to, and re-normalise, smoking, especially for a generation who have grown up in a largely smoke-free society.
Welsh Finance Minister Jane Hutt says all £70m of extra funding announced for Wales in the Chancellor's Autumn Statement will be spent on the health service in Wales.
The Welsh Government had been challenged by the UK Government to commit the funding to the NHS. Jane Hutt said:
Investing in our health service is a priority for this Government as reflected in our Budget for 2015-16. We have taken the opportunity today to boost our own investment with an additional £70m revenue funding. This means that over two years we’ve increased investment in our Welsh NHS by more than half a billion pounds. This demonstrates our clear commitment to a sustainable NHS in Wales based on the reforms outlined in the Nuffield report.
