Rhodri Morgan saved 'struggling' Welsh Assembly, Jones says

Former first minister Rhodri Morgan, who has died aged 77, has been described as the most popular politician of his generation.

The tribute was paid by Alun Michael, who he replaced at the helm of the Welsh Assembly in February 2000.

Mr Morgan has been credited with bringing stability to the fledgling institution during his nine years in charge after its turbulent start.

His successor, Carwyn Jones, said he had taken a "struggling" assembly and built "something far more durable".
