THREE ARRESTED IN CORUS THEFTS PROBE.
Three people have been arrested and a further dozen have been suspended on full pay in relation to thefts from the Corus steelworks at Port Talbot. It is believed that thousands of pounds worth of building materials have been taken, although it is unknown when the thefts took place. Eight of those under suspicion were employed by sub-contractor Amec, with four working for Corus. A Corus spokesperson said the thefts were being taken 'very seriously' and that they would be 'cooperating fully with the police investigation'.
The arrests were part of an ongoing investigation by South Wales Police.
CANON Andrew Todd, the sub dean at St Edmundsbury Cathedral in Bury St Edmunds has been appointed Dean of Chaplaincy Studies at St Michael's College, Llandaff.
The college, a partner with Cardiff University, has a contract with the Ministry of Defence and the Hospital Chaplaincies Council to train chaplains for the Forces and NHS. In addition, Andrew's national role will be to develop a new research and consultancy centre, making St Michael's the UK's leading centre for chaplaincy.
'This new post provides an exciting challenge, to develop the role of chaplains in a diverse number of workplaces,' said Andrew, who has been in the diocese since 2001.
'I will be drawing on all that I have learnt in my present post as well as my previous experience.'
NEARLY 1,000 'save our hospital' demonstrators marched through a town centre in the heat in one of the biggest protests a seaside resort has ever seen.
Families, children, pensioners and some in wheelchairs were led by the town band and were cheered by shoppers, with motorists sounding their horns in encouragement at Llandudno.
The weekend protest was against plans to downgrade the town's hospital. Outside the town hall there were speeches by the mayor, Philip Evans, and others denouncing the proposals.
Assembly Member Denise Idris Jones revealed that she had been given an assurance by a senior official of the NHS in Wales that if any equipment had been removed from Llandudno hospital to Ysbyty Gwynedd while the consultation period was still in force, then it would be put back.
