Plaid visit Pontypridd

Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood was out campaigning in Pontypridd Market today, as the party looks to take back contol of the local council.

According to the new leader, the party could reach out to Labour in order to stave off Westminster's influence in Wales.

What I've said is that we should work with all progressive parties and individuals who are interested in working with us at whatever level.

There's an assumption that we are just talking about assembly level here, I'm talking about local coalitions which will be needed to provide the shield that we need to protect people against the cuts that are coming from the Tories.

Let's be clear the cuts that are coming from the Tories are devastating people. People are being put out of work, people's homes are under threat and life is going to get more difficult than it is now.

– Leanne Wood, Plaid Cymru Leader
