Ieuan Wyn Jones to stand down as Ynys Mon AM

Former Plaid Cymru leader Ieuan Wyn Jones is standing down as Assembly Member for Anglesey.

He is expected to make the announcement, which would trigger a by-election on the island, at around 09:00 BST on Tuesday.

Daran Hill, a political consultant with Positive Politics, said Mr Jones would not have taken the decision "without a very good reason indeed".

Mr Hill spoke to Oliver Hides on BBC Radio Wales.
