A coroner has ruled that a man who died at Withybush Hospital in 2012 did not receive 'optimum care'.

The inquest at Milford Haven heard that 82-year-old Malcolm Green suffered internal bleeding after surgery to remove a tumour from his colon but there was a delay in treating him.

The inquest heard evidence that Mr Green would probably have survived if doctors had acted more quickly.

The hospital had already admitted 'avoidable and unacceptable delays' in Mr Green's treatment.
