Tal Michael has been selected by Welsh Labour to be its candidate in the Welsh assembly by-election on Anglesey.

The poll on 1 August is the first by-election to be held for an assembly seat for seven years.

It was prompted by former Plaid Cymru leader Ieuan Wyn Jones's decision to stand down.

Mr Michael contested the election for a new north Wales police commissioner last year, and was the former police authority's chief executive.

Plaid Cymru have selected the former BBC Wales presenter Rhun ap Iorwerth to fight the seat, after Mr Jones decided to resign as AM to lead the new Menai Science Park.

The other political parties are expected to announce their candidates for the 1 August election shortly.
