MP Jonathan Edwards suspended from Plaid Cymru after accepting police caution

The Carmarthen East and Dinefwr MP Jonathan Edwards has been suspended from Plaid Cymru and will now face an internal party investigation.

It comes after he accepted a police caution in relation to his arrest following an incident on May 20th which he describes in a personal statement as 'by far the biggest regret of my life.'
