There were 48 people admitted to hospital with coronavirus in the last week, according to data from Public Health Wales. In the seven days leading up to February 11, 48 people were admitted to hospital with Covid, and a further eight people were admitted to critical care.

This is a decrease on the week before where 74 people were hospitalised with the virus. However, the week prior to this week, just three people were admitted to critical care with Covid, compared to the eight reported in the most recent update.

In the seven days leading up to February 10, there were 11 suspected coronavirus deaths in Wales. The week before, there were 17 suspected Covid deaths.

Local News & Discussion / Re: West Shore Issues.............Hundreds of logs that appear

The appearance of more than 200 logs on a Conwy beachfront left curious bypassers ?stumped?. Initially they were piled up and covered by tarpaulins but they?ve since been lined up in a neat grid at Llandudno?s West Shore Beach.

When photos were shared on social media seeking explanations, one man shuddered at a scene that ?looks like a mass graveyard in a movie?. A woman thought the logs has been lined up for an axe-cutting competition.

In fact, the truth is almost as strange. A famous public art project initially staged in New York, USA, is being recreated for the first time in almost half a century. Llandudno?s Oriel Mostyn Gallery is restaging a work by US artist Rosemarie Castoro that was originally displayed in the shadow of the former twin towers of Manhattan?s World Trade Center.

North Wales Police is being given ?1 million, as is neighbouring Dyfed-Powys Police, along with Gwent Police, while South Wales Police will get ?1,429,204.

A walker has died after suffering a cardiac arrest on Llandudno's Great Orme. Emergency services were called to the headland shortly after 2pm on Sunday after the male walker collapsed.

Paramedics, coastguard officers and mountain rescue volunteers from Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team [OVMRT] were called to the scene. Efforts were made to save him, but he was sadly pronounced dead.

An OVMRT spokesperson said: "A family group were walking on the foot path on the southern side of the Great Orme above Llandudno, when one of them suffered a cardiac arrest. Bystander CPR was conducted as the ambulance, mountain rescue and coastguard were called to assist at the scene.

Troubled Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is making progress to move on from dysfunctionality found within its board one year ago, a report has found. After a period of significant disruption during 2023, the board is in a more stable position and working relationships amongst senior leaders are more positive overall, a report by Audit Wales said.

However, it says there are still fundamental challenges to address, including building a high performing executive team, recruiting substantively to remaining posts on the board, and ensuring the new board demonstrates a unified and effective leadership to tackle the challenges the organisation faces.

COUNCIL tax in Conwy is set to rise by nearly 10 per cent for the second year running, meaning residents are likely to pay almost 20 per cent more in April 2024 than they paid in March 2023.

The proposed rise is included in a report set to be debated at a finance committee meeting on Monday, February 19 before the budget is set by full council on February 29.

If agreed, a resident living in a band D property will now pay ?1,733.37 a year ? before police and town council precepts are added.
