Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies will address the party's Spring Forum in Cardiff later today.

He's expected to tell Tory activists that it's time to shake off the victim culture that he believes Wales has had for too long and to unlock the huge opportunities ahead by working closely with Westminster.

Mr Davies is also expected to talk about Brexit but it's thought that he will focus on the local government elections in May. The Conservatives plan to contest all 22 Welsh councils with candidates for just under half the 1,200 seats.

The Conservative Spring Forum is a gathering of representatives from all parts of Britain. It's been combined with the Welsh Conservative Conference, giving Mr Davies a larger than usual audience for his keynote speech.
