First Minister Carwyn Jones has opened tributes in the Senedd to his predecessor, Rhodri Morgan, who died last week. Mr Jones recalled how he'd been appointed to the Welsh cabinet by a man he regarded as a father figure.

What I am now, I owe to him. He was a hugely intelligent man, with a fine mind but he could get on with anybody.

We've lost one of our nation's giants. He may be gone but his name is written into our nation's history.

– First Minister Carwyn Jones AM
