Labour AM Keith Davies has returned to work in the Welsh assembly after suffering a blood clot on the brain.

He shook hands with other AMs who welcomed him back to the Senedd chamber in Cardiff Bay at a full meeting of the assembly on Wednesday.

The Llanelli AM was admitted to hospital last September after falling ill.

He was discharged from the University Hospital of Wales the following month, but did not require surgery.

He has been recuperating at home.

Mr Davies was elected to the assembly at the last election at the age of 70, taking back Llanelli from Plaid Cymru by 80 votes.

Writing on Twitter, fellow Labour AMs said it was good to see Mr Davies back in the Senedd at the second plenary session of the year.

Labour AM Ken Skates wrote: "Good to have you back, comrade!"
