Leanne Wood: 'Hope for a new beginning'

Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood has snatched Rhondda from Labour.

It came at the expense of the former Welsh Government minister Leighton Andrews.

Ms Wood said her victory, which was a 24% swing from Labour to Plaid, was a "new dawn" for Rhondda after claiming 11,891 votes - nearly 3,500 more than Mr Andrews.
