Owen Smith MP is 'definitely' new Shadow Welsh Secretary

There is still no official news on the new Shadow Welsh Secretary, but ITV Wales understands that Pontypridd MP Owen Smith is most likely to get the job. One source has told ITV Wales' Political Editor that he has 'definitely' got the job.

No formal announcement has yet been made but an announcement is likely within the next few days.

Peter Hain announced earlier this week that he would stand down from the role to concentrate on campaigning for a Severn barrage.
