In a statement North Wales AM Michelle Brown says that the language she used was inappropriate and has apologised to anyone that has been offended by it.

The point I was making is that because of his considerable wealth and privilege, Chukka Umunna cannot possibly understand the difficulties and issues that the average black person faces in this country any more than I can, and I stand by that assertion.

I do however accept that the language I used in the private conversation was inappropriate and I apologise to anyone that has been offended by it.

As far as the language I used about Mr Hunt is concerned, it was a private conversation and I was using language that friends and colleagues often do when chatting to each other.

Meanwhile Labour AM and Assembly Commissioner for Equality Joyce Watson has called the comments unacceptable. She told ITV News it was potentially a matter for an Assembly standards inquiry.
