The First Minister has criticised Wednesday's Autumn statement blaming what he calls "failed austerity".

Speaking to the Sunday Times Carwyn Jones said it lacked any plans to support the Welsh steel industry or Swansea's tidal lagoon.

He also said the UK Government needed to start working more constructively with other nations.

Chancellor Phillip Hammond announced an increase in the national minimum wage, and an extra £400 million pound boost for the Welsh government to spend on infrastructure projects like buildings and roads.
