Chief mine inspector defends Gleision investigation

The man in charge of the investigation into the Gleision Colliery disaster has said that nothing more could have been done to establish what happened.

Speaking exclusively to ITV Cymru Wales for tonight's Wales This Week programme, the Acting Chief Inspector of Mines Steve Denton said he is satisfied that the Health and Safety Executive did everything it could.

That comes despite criticism, from the families of the four miners who died in September 2011, that they were not thorough enough - and a public inquiry is now needed.
