"Carwyn and I are going to get along fine" says Corbyn

Labour leadership frontrunner Jeremy Corbyn, on a visit to the Aneurin Bevan Stones near Tredegar, has claimed that he would have a good working relationship with First Minister Carwyn Jones, who's said that the veteran leftwinger would be "an unusual choice" of party leader.

Earlier Mr Corbyn said his campaign needed to be a bit cautious about a poll giving him a commanding lead in the leadership contest but when he was asked about how he'd get on with the First Minister, he talked as if he expected to be Labour leader.

Carwyn and I are going to get along fine ... perhaps we can narrow the clear red water [between Labour in Wales and at Westminster] -and walk across it.

– Jeremy Corbyn MP

Mr Corby added that a big movement was growing "full of optimism and hope".

Ed Miliband: There are 'huge challenges' facing Welsh hospitals and schools

Labour leader Ed Miliband has told ITV News there are 'huge challenges' facing Welsh hospitals and schools - but he also praised the work that the Welsh Government is doing.

Mr Miliband has faced months of taunts from Prime Minister David Cameron about the state of Wales' health and education services.

Today Mr Miliband held a summit with Welsh Labour leaders to thrash out how they'll defend the party's record in Wales ahead of the Westminster elections next year.

Ed Miliband 'incredibly proud' of Labour record in Wales

Ed Miliband told our Political Editor Adrian Masters he is "incredibly proud" of the Labour Welsh Government's record in Wales.

Visiting today alongside his Shadow Cabinet, he pointed to the success of Jobs Growth Wales, and defended its handling of the economy in Wales, and the NHS here.

He also laughed off a question about a tweet sent from the Labour press team, reading 'Everybody should have his own owl', after their Twitter account was apparently hacked.
