Expert Brexit group set up to get 'best outcome' for Wales

The first minister Carwyn Jones has announced he is setting up an expert advisory group to ensure Wales gets the "best possible outcome" when the UK leaves the European Union.

The Welsh Government said the group would be made up of "business people, politicians and experts with a detailed understanding of the European Union" but would not reveal any names.

Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies criticised the plan, calling it a "last-minute scramble for ideas".

The first minister has also pledged to involve Plaid Cymru in Brexit planning via a "new dialogue" under the existing agreement which keeps Welsh Labour in power in Cardiff Bay.

Speaking from the Anglesey Show, Plaid Cymru AM Simon Thomas said the relationship could only be "of benefit to Wales".
