    Commenting on reports that Caerleon Campus is set to close, Aled Roberts, Welsh Liberal Democrat Shadow Education Minister, said:

    "We are seeing yet another broken promise from the Welsh Labour Government. The merger only took place last year and we were explicitly told that campuses wouldn't close.

    "This is a major blow not only for students, but for staff too who have every right to feel angry and betrayed. Labour needs to explain why it has gone back on its word.

    Cardiff Central MP Jenny Willott has become one of 40 MPs from across the UK to champion the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and help beat cystic fibrosis for good.

    Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening inherited disease, affecting over 10,000 people in the UK.

    Dear Editor,

    I was pleased to read on 28th August that Mind Cymru has highlighted the need for more to be done to prevent people, particularly men, from ending up in hospital with a mental illness.

    One in four people are likely to suffer from a mental health problem at some point, which can have a long-lasting impact on their quality of life, affecting their work, their home life and their personal relationships. For far too long, mental health has not been given the attention it deserves and has unfairly been the subject of misunderstanding and discrimination.

    Cardiff's Lib Dems say a damning Welsh Audit Office report into the city's performance reveals Labour's failure of leadership since it took over running the Council in 2012.

    The report's scathing attack on 'fragmented leadership and management" has heaped pressure on Cllr Phil Bale, leader of the council.

    Erthygl: 2014 Medi 4

    A damning Welsh Audit Office report into the performance of Cardiff Council has revealed Labour's failure of leadership since it took over running the Council in 2012.

    The report's scathing attack on Labour's "fragmented leadership and management" has heaped pressure on Cllr Phil Bale, leader of the council. This report is in stark contrast to a similar one released in 2011, when the Welsh Lib Dems led the council, which praised the Lib Dems' "clear and firm leadership and sound governance".

  • Kirsty conference stage
    Erthygl: 2014 Medi 4

    Welsh ambulance workers affiliated to the GMB union have voted in principle in favour of industrial action, and to call a vote of no confidence in the Welsh Ambulance Trust management.

    Although another ballot will need to happen before any industrial action is taken, this news is a damning judgement on the failure of the Welsh Labour Government to properly run our health service. Any industrial action is likely to be 'working to rule' and not a full-blown strike.
