Carwyn Jones: 'Jeremy Corbyn still has to prove himself'

Carwyn Jones hit the campaign trail today but one voter he met wasn't too happy to see him, questioning the First Minister on his political ambitions for Wales.

Welsh Labour want him to front their Welsh campaigns as several Welsh opinion polls show Carwyn Jones is more popular than Jeremy Corbyn.

Labour had a good result at last year's Assembly elections holding on to many of its marginal seats.

Carwyn Jones was again stressing Labour's devolved record, while Theresa May has been trying to set this election against a Brexit backdrop.

The framing of the debate over the next 49 days could prove crucial in determining the result.
