A man remains in a critical condition in hospital after he was knocked off his bike on Friday evening (August 18th).

Officers say they are appealing for information about the incident involving one car on the B5106 in Gyffin, Conwy, at around 5pm.

North Wales Police said the cyclist was taken to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd in Bodelwyddan with serious injuries.

He has since been transferred to hospital in Stoke where he is said to be in a critical condition.

Demands for Assembly to be recalled following internal review into alleged sex abuser

Plaid Cymru's Bethan Jenkins is calling for the Assembly to be recalled in light of an internal review by a health board which has found delays in escalating sex abuse allegations against a former nurse assistant.

Kris Wade worked in the Learning and Disabilities Directorate of Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board and was based in Rowan House, Cardiff, when the allegations were made.

Wade later went on to murder his next door neighbour, Christine James, in a 'sexually motivated' attack.

Bethan Jenkins is also calling for ABMU to be placed into special measures.

The buck has to stop somewhere and there needs to be accountability for another failure of patient care and protection at ABMU.

I would urge the Welsh Government to place ABMU into further special measures and more fully explain their role during this time, what they knew and why.

I also think the National Assembly should be recalled as soon as possible so that a full statement can be made by the Welsh Government to outline their response to these events and what they plan to do to ensure this does not happen again in ABMU or Wales.”
