New Cardiff Labour leader Huw Thomas 'truly humble'

Labour councillors in Cardiff have chosen Huw Thomas to be their new leader.

The councillor for Splott will take over from Phil Bale who has led Wales' biggest local authority since 2014.

Labour retained control of the council in elections last week, but years of infighting convinced some members a new leader was needed.

Mr Thomas, 31, was one of five candidates who put their name forward to challenge Mr Bale.

He said: "I'm truly humble that they've put their faith in me."
