The Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

TRIB­UTES have been paid to for­mer Welsh min­is­ter Carl Sargeant as for­mal busi­ness re­sumed at the Welsh As­sem­bly.

Mr Sargeant, 49, was found dead at home on Novem­ber 7, four days af­ter be­ing re­moved from his role as sec­re­tary for com­mu­ni­ties and chil­dren.

The fa­ther-of-two, from Con­nah’s Quay, was sus­pended by Labour over al­le­ga­tions of “un­wanted at­ten­tion, in­ap­pro­pri­ate touch­ing or grop­ing”.

His fam­ily and friends at­tended the Senedd, where a minute’s si­lence was held and trib­utes paid

Pre­sid­ing of­fi­cer Elin Jones told the cham­ber: “His death has shaken us to our core and his ab­sence from our midst pains us today.”
