Unless new rules are established post-Brexit, a "trade war"

:00:09.:00:15.

could develop between the nations of the United Kingdom -

:00:16.:00:18.

that's the warning from the First Minister.

:00:19.:00:20.

It's the kind of issue Carwyn Jones wants to talk about as part

:00:21.:00:23.

of the Labour Party's constitutional convention, which he's

:00:24.:00:25.

launching to discuss the future make-up of the UK.

:00:26.:00:27.

As we prepare to leave the European Union, is the union

:00:28.:00:29.

conference in Cardiff yesterday, the Prime Minister set

:00:30.:00:40.

out her desire to creating a more united Britain.

:00:41.:00:42.

In the next few weeks Theresa May will

:00:43.:00:44.

formally start the Brexit negotiating process.

:00:45.:00:47.

At the same time the First Minister would like

:00:48.:00:49.

to discuss the UK's future post-Brexit.

:00:50.:00:55.

If we don't have any rules at all about what can happen

:00:56.:00:58.

in the UK after we leave the EU, we could have a rade war

:00:59.:01:05.

-- in the UK after we leave the EU, we could have a trade war

:01:06.:01:09.

between the different nations, that could cost

:01:10.:01:10.

jobs, a lot of money, that affects ordinary people,

:01:11.:01:13.

and that needs to be resolved as soon as possible.

:01:14.:01:15.

Nonsense, says the leader of the Welsh Conservatives.

:01:16.:01:17.

I'm baffled by this pronunciation of "trade wars".

:01:18.:01:19.

The union of the United Kingdom has been around for many centuries.

:01:20.:01:22.

As I last looked at the constitutional settlement,

:01:23.:01:23.

trade and industry certainly wasn't devolved.

:01:24.:01:25.

It is the kind of topic these two and other senior Labour

:01:26.:01:28.

figures will discuss as part of the party's

:01:29.:01:30.

Constitutional convention, launching in Cardiff

:01:31.:01:31.

Today, the former Prime Minister Gordon Brown called for

:01:32.:01:35.

more powers to be transferred to Scotland after Brexit.

:01:36.:01:37.

The Scottish First Minister, in Aberdeen this

:01:38.:01:38.

weekend for the SNP conference, would like to go

:01:39.:01:41.

for a second independence Referendum.

:01:42.:01:51.

Unless the UK government starts listening to Wales and the

:01:52.:01:54.

other devolved nations, the first Minister warns the battle to keep

:01:55.:01:56.

You can watch the full interview with Carwyn Jones

:01:57.:02:05.

on the Sunday Politics Wales on BBC One Wales tomorrow

:02:06.:02:07.

160,000 images are recovered every time an online child sexual

:02:08.:02:13.

That's according to South Wales Police, who have made 43 arrests

:02:14.:02:17.

It is warning about the increase in sharing of sexual images

:02:18.:02:28.

of under-18s online as part of national

:02:29.:02:29.

Hundreds turned up to a rally in Cardiff organised

:02:30.:02:33.

Among those attending, local MP Jo Stevens,

:02:34.:02:39.

Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood and Muslim teacher Juhel Miah

:02:40.:02:41.

from Swansea, who was denied entry to the United States

:02:42.:02:44.

Rugby - and Wales lost to France in a dramatic end

:02:45.:02:51.

They led by five points until the 99th minute of the game,

:02:52.:02:55.

in one of the longest matches on record.

:02:56.:03:02.

They were playing for position, second, that is. Four tries and a

:03:03.:03:12.

bonus point in Paris, but this was France crossing the line. The Welsh

:03:13.:03:18.

response was halted. A sin bin for a deliberate knocking on. On offence

:03:19.:03:21.

Jonathan Davies had just got away with. But no penalty try. The

:03:22.:03:26.

referee less satisfied than the crowd that George North would have

:03:27.:03:30.

scored. Three points from Leigh Halfpenny would have to do. Again

:03:31.:03:35.

and again. The full-back narrowed the gap as the Frenchman returned to

:03:36.:03:39.

the pitch and just before half-time, Wales one point behind after a mixed

:03:40.:03:45.

bazaar. It was not the start to the second many wanted. The captain was

:03:46.:03:49.

off after ten minutes. Leigh Halfpenny provided consolation,

:03:50.:03:52.

giving the Welsh the lead with a 55 metre penalty but it was the end

:03:53.:03:56.

that mattered. The Blues brought on a fresh prop after 80 minutes and

:03:57.:04:00.

then a yellow card for Samsung after some confusion for everyone when

:04:01.:04:05.

Thomas Francis replaced him, but they played on so long that he came

:04:06.:04:09.

back on before a bizarre break to check if George North had been

:04:10.:04:14.

bitten. It's descended into farce. But France were the team eventually

:04:15.:04:20.

emerging on top. Just five seconds short of 100 minutes, they got the

:04:21.:04:24.

try with a kick sealing it for the French, 20-18.

:04:25.:04:31.

Swansea currently 0-0 against Bournemouth.

:04:32.:04:33.

In the Championship, Cardiff City won 3-1

:04:34.:04:35.

Newport County ended their revival with a 3-1 loss against Blackpool

:04:36.:04:39.

and Wrexhamlost 3-nil to Forest Green in

:04:40.:04:40.

Let's take a quick look at the weather.

:04:41.:04:43.

Tonight will stay cloudy with a risk of more rain with winds

:04:44.:04:46.

Tomorrow will start cloudy and windy with more rain,

:04:47.:04:51.

but things may brighten up across the north later.

:04:52.:04:53.

We'll be back tomorrow evening at 5:50.

:04:54.:04:55.

Thanks for watching and have a good evening.
