Deputy Leader of Flintshire Council Bernie Attridge has called for First Minister Carwyn Jones to resign following the death of his former minister Carl Sargeant.
His death came less than a week after he was sacked from Carwyn Jones' cabinet and it was revealed that complaints about his personal conduct would be investigated by Welsh Labour.
In a tweet Bernie Attridge said the First Minister should 'do the right thing and resign' and that the way he had treated Carl Sargeant made him 'sick'.

Following the release of correspondence between Carl Sargent's solicitor and the Labour party, the solicitor's firm, Bowden Jones, has issued a statement. It says that requests for details of the complaints against Mr Sargeant were made to the First Minister of Wales, the General Secretary of the Labour Party in Wales and the Labour Party Head Office Disputes team but those requests were refused. The firm also states categorically that no support was offered to Carl Sargeant by the Labour party.
It has been suggested that support was offered to Mr Sargeant. It is not clear in what form this support was suggested to have been offered but that is not correct. No support was offered to Mr Sargeant other than that personally offered by close friends and family.
The family are currently dealing with the tragic loss of Carl and would not wish to be disturbed any further. They wanted simply to explain the position as they are aware of it so as to avoid further inevitable speculation as to the circumstances surrounding Carl’s tragic death.
The family hopes that moving forward that there will be a full investigation and scrutiny of the way that the relevant parties concerned dealt with the allegations, Mr Sargeant personally and the statements that have been made in the press and media.
Those that owed a clear duty of care to Carl and to his family will, no doubt in due course need to provide clarity on their respective positions in this tragedy.
Meanwhile there's been a fresh allegation from one of Carl Sargeant's close political friends about how the former minister was treated over several years.
The family of Carl Sargeant has released a solicitor's email sent to the Labour party after Carwyn Jones gave TV interviews on Monday.Read the full story ›

Despite the announcement that former prisoners will no longer receive priority housing, the Welsh Government has insisted other changes in the Housing Bill will help the most vulnerable former prisoners to find accommodation.
Several respondents expressed concerns about some aspects of the proposal, particularly the potential impact on the successful resettlement of vulnerable prisoners and the impact on reoffending. The broader provisions on homelessness will provide much-improved help for prisoners before release to find them suitable accommodation.
I would like to emphasise that the needs of vulnerable former prisoners will continue to be met through the legislation, within the context of a more proactive approach to prevention.
