Welsh Labour are hailing their best vote share since 1997 and three seats gained in Gower, Vale of Clwyd and Cardiff North. Party sources are claiming that the very distinct campaigns fought by Carwyn Jones and Jeremy Corbyn jointly delivered a result beyond expectations.

They say Welsh Labour’s campaign, led by Carwyn Jones, connected positively with voters across Wales, while Labour’s UK campaign, led by Jeremy Corbyn, was hugely effective, especially in energising 18 – 24 year olds who voted in unprecedented numbers.
