Vets in Wales are exhausted and being abused due to staff shortages and low carbon energy will play a key role in the growth of North Wales.
Vets in Wales are exhausted and facing abuse amid a staff shortage.
Brexit, the pandemic and a rise in breeding have all been cited as the reasons, as vets from the EU who would usually pick up extra work load have disappeared.
In the most extreme cases, vets and receptionists are receiving violent threats from pet owners.
Bute park incident update
Two men and a sixteen year old girl have appeared in court charged with the murder of a man in Cardiff.
Dr Gary Jenkins died two weeks after sustaining injuries in an incident at Bute Park. The three suspects will appear for a plea and trial preparation hearing in October.
Described by his family as a loving father, husband and brother, he died at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, on Thursday, August 5.
His family, who continue to be supported by specially-trained family liaison officers, have released the following statement.
“We are distraught to announce the untimely death of Dr Gary Jenkins, who was a loving father of two wonderful daughters.
“He lived his life happily with love, music, creativity and dedication to his profession.
“We ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
The future of North Wales
The production of low carbon energy will be a key sector for the North Wales economy, says the Minister for North Wales Lesley Griffiths.
Low Carbon Energy is one of five programmes included in the North Wales Growth Deal
, which offers the opportunity for £1.1bn of investment across the region.
The Minister was visiting Anglesey to hear more about plans for the Morlais tidal power scheme and the hydrogen Hub which is planned for Holyhead.
Both schemes are being led by Menter Môn, with Morlais being one of the proposed North Wales Growth Deal investments.
