Plaid Cymru MP suspended from party's Westminster group following arrest

Plaid Cymru has suspended the Carmarthen East and Dinefwr MP Jonathan Edwards from its Westminster group.

The party says the move follows Mr Edwards' arrest when police were called to an incident on May 20.

He was later released without charge pending further inquiries.

His party says withdrawing the whip is a "neutral act" during the police investigation.

A spokesperson said:

On May 20th, Jonathan Edwards MP was arrested following a report of an incident.
