Former Shadow Welsh Secretary Nia Griffith has claimed that if the Conservatives elect Stephen Crabb as their next leader, they'll be "turning the clock back". Mr Crabb was promoted earlier this year from Welsh Secretary to Work and Pensions Secretary but Ms Griffith condemned his opposition to equal marriage for gay people and his department's treatment of people with disabilities.
The new Shadow Welsh Secretary says the party can turn enthusiasm generated by the election of its new leader into votes in next May's Welsh Election. Nia Griffith was addressing Welsh delegates at the start of Labour's conference in Brighton. She told our Political Editor Adrian Masters why Jeremy Corbyn's election is good news for Labour in Wales.
