Trudy Jones, from Blackwood, was among the 30 Britons killed when extremist Seifeddine Rezgui opened fire in Sousse in June 2015, shooting 38 people dead.

The inquest into the deaths of his British victims at the five-star Riu Imperial Marhaba Hotel began at the Royal Courts of Justice last month.

Andrew Ritchie QC, counsel to the families of the victims, said last week that Judge Loraine-Smith, who is sitting as coroner, should consider a "neglect" conclusion, arguing that there had been "gross neglect" on the part of the TUI travel company.

The number of refugees from Syria who have been resettled in Wales has reached 397, according to new figures from the Home Office.

Conwy and Denbighshire became the latest local authority areas to resettle refugees under the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme.

Oxfam Cymru have welcomed the figures, adding that for many in Syria the situation remains "desperate".

We welcome the fact that local authorities in Wales are continuing to play their part in this effort, welcoming many more refugees to communities right across the country.
