Cable theft sees cancer ops cancelled15th December 2011
A series of operations, including some for cancer, were cancelled after copper cabling was stolen from a back-up generator at Llandough hospital near Cardiff in the Vale of Glamorgan.
More than 80 patients were affected overall by the theft of 100m of cabling, an act which hospital managers was "dangerous and irresponsible". A new back-up generator is being tested before routine surgery can resume. The theft on Tuesday meant 36 operations were cancelled on Wednesday morning as a precaution and a further 45 in the afternoon.
