In a joint statement Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Board and the Welsh Ambulance Service said a review is being launched into what happened.

The Emergency Department at Morriston Hospital has been very busy with a high number of ambulances arriving in a short space of time. Escalation plans have been activated and staff across the hospital are working closely with colleagues from WAST to keep delays to a minimum.

We will be urgently reviewing the circumstances to ensure we have a proper and full understanding of what happened. It is too early at this stage to comment any further.?
