The Welsh Government's Cabinet will hold an urgent meeting for ministers to discuss the implications of the EU referendum vote for Wales.

First Minister Carwyn Jones has already laid out six priority areas for action in his initial response to the result and the Cabinet discussion will focus on how these can be taken forward immediately.

Mr Jones, who backed the campaign to remain in the EU, said: "This will be one of the most important Cabinet meetings since devolution, where we will look at an initial evaluation of the potential consequences of this result for Wales, and agree how we will take the priorities forward in the national interest.

"The full implications of this vote are still far from clear and will not be so for some time.

In Thursday's referendum 52.5% of voters in Wales backed Leave, compared with 47.5% supporting Remain.
