The leader of Plaid Cymru Leanne Wood has said her party had "not too bad a night", in last night's election.

Plaid now have four seats in Westminster - holding Arfon, Carmarthen East & Dinefwr, Dwyfor Meirionydd, and gaining Ceredigion from the Lib Dems.

Newly-elected Ceredigion MP Ben Lake has become the youngest in Wales.

On what was a very difficult, polarising night, to win here in Ceredigion and to get the same number of MPs that Plaid Cymru has had on our best ever showing is not too bad a result for us at all.

On Friday Ms Wood tweeted that all parties must come together to stop what she called a "Thatcher-on-steroids" government.

When asked whether her party would be open to backing either Labour or the Conservatives, Leanne Wood said her attitudes towards the Tories were clear.

The Tories are bad for Wales, the Tories are bad for people in Wales and anything that we can do, any work that we can do with others to stop the Tories then we'll be looking seriously at that.
