Three decades on, Wales this Week catches up with the Dyer family, and talks to the experts about how IVF treatment has advanced in the last thirty years.

There is to be no full inquest into the deaths of four miners at the Gleision Colliery, ITV Wales has learned. The Health and Safety Executive has confirmed it will now be publishing a report on its investigation into the tragedy.

Three years after the fatal flood at Gleision, there are continuing calls for answers into what went wrong from the victims’ families, the mine owners and local MP Peter Hain.

Talking to Wales This Week, he said he would be raising the issue in Parliament.

At least to bring to a wider audience my doubts and my questions, and to speak to the families. Not to re-open the trial, not to seek vengeance, not to try and find scapegoats because I doubt that there are any to be found. This was a terrible tragedy and we want to know what went on, and nobody’s telling us.

Wales This Week has uncovered evidence which sheds new light on the history of the mine; confusion about when it was licensed and working; serious doubts about the number and accuracy of underground plans; and a gap in the provision of legally required documentation for the Gleision.
