"Dad never stood a chance", says daughter of stroke victim

A woman from Cardiff whose father died after suffering a stroke says social services failed to contact him for three days.

Richard Fisher had carers every day, but when he didn't answer the door she says they left. He'd suffered a stroke and died a few days later.

"I just don't understand why these people never ever phoned me. As soon as those carers walked away from that door my father didn't stand a chance" she said.

Cardiff Council says it takes social welfare "very seriously" and that it has "commissioned an independent investigator to look into this matter"
