This incident is one I regret wholeheartedly and I am deeply sorry.
On this occasion, I fell well below the standards I expect of myself and therefore fully accept the judge's decision in this matter.
I would like to thanks the police for the manner in which they have dealt with this process.
This has been a deeply difficult period, in which i've begun to come to terms with depression for the first time.
Friends and others, including many from South Wales West, the region I represent with tremendous pride, have shown wonderful support, for which I am truly thankful.
