A tonne of unwanted clothes encouraged people to think of the environmental impact of discarded items.

Cardiff Fashion Week runs from the 22nd October until the 29th, with a variety of events taking place at various locations across the city.

Jo Stevens, Shadow Secretary of State for Wales, has slammed Leanne Wood's conference speech that claims Plaid Cymru are the only party who will defend Wales' interests in Brexit negotiations.

Jo said: "This is an absurd claim from the leader of entirely inward-focused party.

"Labour is leading the charge both in Parliament and through the First Minister to ensure Wales' voice is heard in Brexit negotiations.

"Plaid Cymru's stated aims - for Wales to be included in negotiations, and to strengthen Wales' constitutional position - are quite correct, and that's why Labour, the party which delivered Welsh devolution, is fighting for key amendments to improve the Wales Bill, and making sure Wales has a seat at the table in Brexit negotiations."
