Bethan Jenkins reinstated to Plaid Assembly group

Plaid Cymru AM Bethan Jenkins has been reinstated to the party's group of Assembly members. The South Wales West AM had been suspended after she was charged with drink-driving in October and was banned for driving for 20 months after pleading guilty.

Following a meeting of Plaid's Assembly group this morning, its chair Alun Ffred Jones said:

Bethan has apologised publicly and this morning has apologised in full to Plaid Cymru AMs. Her suspension from the Assembly group has been lifted and she is a full member again. The group’s disciplinary process has now ended.
