The number of people dying from diabetes-related conditions in Wales is falling, that's according to a new report published today by the Welsh Government.
Figures show the number of people dying from the condition fell from 420 in 2009, to 300 in 2013.
However the total cost to the Welsh NHS of providing care for the disease is more than half a billion pounds a year- a significant chunk of the overall six billion pounds health budget.
Health officials say this spending is essential to meet the demands of the increasing number of people with diabetes.
“As a country we are facing a huge increase in the number of people with diabetes. The reality is much of the increase is type 2 diabetes is due to the ageing population and more of us becoming overweight. This has serious implications for people’s health and the places further pressure on our NHS."
The report also found that people living in deprived parts of Wales are more likely to suffer, and that there are an estimated 66,000 people with type 2 diabetes who are undiagnosed.
Chief executive of the NHS Dr Andrew Goodall says these figures show there is still work to be done to make further improvements for the Welsh population.
“This will need to be a joint effort between the service in NHS Wales and the public. Obesity is the top risk factor for type 2 diabetes at all ages and 58% of all adults in Wales in 2013 are overweight or obese. This will need many of us to change our lifestyles if we are to tackle diabetes effectively in the future.”
Bangor has one of the lowest burglary rates in the UK, according to new research.
Analysis by the price comparison site MoneySuperMarket found that the university town, along with postcodes in Dumfries and and Lochee in Scotland, are among the areas with the lowest proportion of burglary claims across the country.
Meanwhile the UK's worst burglary hotspots include Dagenham, the RM8 postcode in east London and Grants Hill, also in London.
"Burglars often target urban areas where there's more hustle and bustle and so less risk of being caught, but not surprisingly they also follow the money, which is why affluent areas such as Teddington and Temple Newsam in West Yorkshire appearing in the top 20 claims hotspots."
