Following Carl Sargeant's death yesterday, his family have released an email and a letter that his solicitor sent to the Labour party. In the email he complained about what First Minister Carwyn Jones had said in television interviews on Monday.

In the letter, the solicitor says he'd been led to believe that the allegations were of "unwanted attention, inappropriate touching or groping" and that Mr Sargeant categorically denied any such allegations.

The family's spokesperson has set out the reasons for releasing the correspondence.

The Labour party have released a statement in response to concerns about the investigation into allegations against Carl Sargeant.
