Wales headlines 8 November: Cardiff and the Vale health board give highest alert, Carol Vordermann leaves over new guidelines, Wales announce squad for Armenia and Turkey

  • 7 months ago
Cardiff and the Vale health board have declared the highest level alert, due to ongoing and upcoming winter pressures. The board said it was experiencing significant sustained adverse demand on services. Cardiff is the only health board in this situation so far, but last year at one point all 7 declared the highest alert.

Welsh presenter Carol Vorderman has left her show on BBC Wales, blaming new guidelines about social media usage. New rules dictate when high profile BBC presenters can be critical of the government, and the former Countdown star said she was not prepared to lose her voice on social media.

Wales have announced their squad for two upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers - two must win games. Starlet Brennan Johnson is back in the squad after an injury which has kept him out of action recently. Wales will take on Armenia away and then home to Turkey - who have already qualified. Win and we’re in.
