Adam Cairns, the Chief Executive of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board - which runs the University Hospital of Wales - spoke to ITV News this evening.

He said the primary problem - of getting patients into the hospital - caused cancellations of planned procedures, and needs to be tackled with a "much more resilient plan" in future.
