A relief that we are still united however the relative closeness of the vote indicates that we need to improve the way we are governed - that goes for whether we live in Wales, Scotland, Cornwall or Birmingham.

– David Powell

This is not the end but the start of a conversation that will effect everyone in the UK. There is a view that the Welsh Assembly, the Northern Ireland Assembly and English Regions should, at least, receive more powers and this is bound to impact business by way of various tax measures which in turn has an effect on employment. So last nights result is just the beginning.

I'm pleased we are still United Kingdom. Let's hope the powers promised from Westminster extend to Wales too.

Police appeal after two women assaulted in Cardiff

South Wales Police is investigating after two women were assaulted at around 8:45pm on Saturday 16th August and are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Police are appealing for any witnesses who have not already come forward or for anyone who may have any other information that will assist them in their investigation to contact them.

The suspect is described as male, of mixed race and aged between 18 and 20 years old. He had brown hair which was shaved on the sides and longer with curls on the top. He was wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt, white trainers and a faded maroon jacket which was un-zipped.

Aberystwyth University workers strike over planned changes to pensions

Workers at Aberystwyth University are protesting this morning over planned changes which unions claim will mean losses to pensions of up to 50 per cent.

The University is extremely disappointed that a small number of staff have said they intend to take industrial action. Whilst fully respecting an individual's right to strike, to target the weekend that the University welcomes its newest students goes against all the hard work undertaken by colleagues during the past year to build relationships and attract students to Aberystwyth.

After a successful Clearing campaign, and news that Aberystwyth is within the top Universities for "the best first impression", this action attempts to hit the core business of the University. This is a potential threat to the University's future sustainability, and aims create concern for new students, who may be away from home for the first time, and their families.
