Preseli Pembrokeshire MP Stephen Crabb begins Welsh secretary role

Stephen Crabb MP has been appointed as Welsh secretary, after the serving minister David Jones was sacked.

Mr Crabb said he was "very pleased" and would be "working hard for Wales" and was described by First Minister Carwyn Jones as "pragmatic and reasonable".

Vale of Glamorgan MP Alun Cairns takes over as junior minister at the Wales Office.
