Report: Court appearance over Gleision mine charges

A man has appeared in court charged with four counts of gross negligence manslaughter following one of Wales' worst mining tragedies of recent times. Malcolm Fyfield was the manager of the Gleision Colliery, near Pontardawe, when the men died in September 2011.

MNS Mining Limited which owned the mine at the time, is being prosecuted for corporate manslaughter, as Richard Morgan reports.
