Senedd pays last respects
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.”
