'Every day I ask the question' - Bethan Jenkins

In her first broadcast interview since being convicted of drink-driving, Bethan Jenkins has been telling me how she feels she let down her constituents, family and friends. She said she deeply regrets what happened and that she wasn't thinking rationally.

The Plaid Cymru AM was banned from driving for 20 months after pleading guilty to the charge last month. She was suspended by her party but has since been reinstated although she faces a further investigation by the Assembly's Standards Commissioner.

She tells me she hopes to continue as an Assembly Member and has been overwhelmed by support from constituents, support she didn't think she deserved. You can see my interview in tonight's Sharp End at 1035pm ITV Cymru Wales.
