Assembly harassment talks postponed after ex-minister's death

Welsh Assembly

A meeting to discuss how sexual harassment allegations in the assembly are handled has been postponed after the death of an ex-Labour minister.

Party leaders were due to meet the presiding officer on Tuesday.

But the meeting was postponed following news Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant had taken his own life.

Mr Sargeant, sacked as communities and children's secretary on Friday, had been facing a Labour investigation into allegations about his personal conduct.
