I am a Brexit supporter, you are not.

:00:00.:00:14.

on the campaign trail, the First Minister admits Labour has

:00:15.:00:18.

a mountain to climb in the general election,

:00:19.:00:20.

but says he can see Jeremy Corbyn in Number 10.

:00:21.:00:22.

I think people are looking for an alternative. They don't want the

:00:23.:00:27.

same old they have had for seven years. With claims Labour is in

:00:28.:00:36.

trouble heading into this campaign, I have come to a height land area to

:00:37.:00:40.

find out what kind of shape it isn't. -- heart land area to find

:00:41.:00:50.

out what kind of shape it is in. Karen Kitch has early onset

:00:51.:00:53.

dementia, now a major new research centre

:00:54.:00:56.

at Cardiff University will help It'll be for my children, my

:00:57.:01:05.

grandchildren, because possibly they could have dementia when you're

:01:06.:01:09.

older and if by that time, they can find a cure, that will me happy.

Refugees hold a special training event to build relationships in the

community and talk about where they came from. It was too hard to live

in Syria. It is not good, lots of people are dying.

:01:35.:01:35.

the history-makers who've taken the WRU Cup north for the first time

:01:36.:01:39.

The First Minister Carwyn Jones has admitted that Labour has a mountain

:01:40.:01:46.

Speaking for the first time since the snap election was called,

:01:47.:01:53.

he also said it was an opportunity for the UK leader Jeremy

:01:54.:01:55.

With the party languishing in the polls, how much pressure

:01:56.:01:59.

Our political editor Nick Servini is in one

:02:00.:02:02.

of their heartland areas tonight - Merthyr Tydfil.

:02:03.:02:16.

Appropriately, I have come to be said of a mountain overlooking

:02:17.:02:22.

Merthyr Tydfil Tippett to be tested very frank admission that Labour has

:02:23.:02:28.

a mountain to climb. There may be some method here. Labour is trying

:02:29.:02:33.

to portray itself as the antiestablishment party. Maybe the

:02:34.:02:38.

party for the underdogs in Wales. And that is something that they feel

:02:39.:02:45.

clearly comfortable to be seen as. Coming to a doorstep near you, high

:02:46.:02:49.

profile politicians are back out on the stump. Are you normally a labour

:02:50.:02:59.

voter? Bill. And it's going to get quite uncomfortable for them as the

:03:00.:03:04.

First Minister found out. I am a Brexit supporter, you are not. You

:03:05.:03:10.

haven't tested by your constituency. The Welsh Labour leader of course

:03:11.:03:16.

won't be ending up in number ten of his party wins in June. Dairy

:03:17.:03:23.

corporate world. -- Jeremy Corbyn will be. Can you see him as Prime

:03:24.:03:29.

Minister? Yes, there is no question about that. People have not seen him

:03:30.:03:34.

in an election campaign. He is passionate and offering an

:03:35.:03:37.

alternative. We have a long way to go, we know the electorate is

:03:38.:03:44.

volatile, despite the opinion polls, this is still an election to play

:03:45.:03:48.

for. Lee Briers lagging in the polls, which had led some to predict

:03:49.:03:53.

it will struggle. The party currently has 25 out of the 40

:03:54.:03:57.

parliamentary seats in Wales. -- Labour is lagging in the polls.

:03:58.:04:04.

Cardiff Central, Newport West, Anglesey and the number in South

:04:05.:04:09.

Wales could come under pressure. If Labour lead to leg was six, they go

:04:10.:04:15.

down to less than half in Wales. That hasn't happened very long time.

:04:16.:04:20.

It will take much longer to rebuild of that happens. There is an

:04:21.:04:24.

inevitability, there isn't an end to the Labour Party, but it will take a

:04:25.:04:28.

lot longer to get back to where they used to be. What about its heartland

:04:29.:04:33.

areas? Merthyr Tydfil says it has a big hard. A big problem for Labour

:04:34.:04:38.

in places like this is that they supported Brexit. In contrast to

:04:39.:04:43.

virtually all of the party's leaders. No one realistically expect

:04:44.:04:48.

any other than Labour to win your. This is Labour territory here, isn't

:04:49.:04:54.

it? But they voted out. I will not be voting for them. Lee Briers says

:04:55.:05:00.

they support leaving the EU. It recognises the results. Yes, it's

:05:01.:05:04.

all a bit watery. I am Labour, I would have been, I will not change

:05:05.:05:12.

my mind. If everyone had the same opinion as me, they would be in

:05:13.:05:17.

Downing Street. I think they have lost a few voters. They lost them to

:05:18.:05:22.

Ukip. Potentially to the Conservatives this time maybe.

:05:23.:05:27.

Maybe. Stranger things have happened. Over the next seven weeks,

:05:28.:05:33.

expected to reason me to talk a lot about taking us out of the EU and

:05:34.:05:38.

controlling our Borders. Expect Jeremy Corbyn to talk a lot about

:05:39.:05:41.

and your sturdy and taking on the business elites. The question is, in

:05:42.:05:47.

a place like Merthyr Tydfil which voted to leave, has Jeremy Corbyn

:05:48.:05:50.

pot class -based rhetoric which has gone down so well over the years

:05:51.:05:54.

been overtaken by the new language Brexit? All of the parties will come

:05:55.:06:02.

under intense focus in a frenetic few weeks. But in Wales inevitably,

:06:03.:06:06.

that means the dominant force Labour will face the biggest questions.

:06:07.:06:12.

Next, Jeremy Corbyn is saying it is not a foregone conclusion that

:06:13.:06:22.

Labour will lose, politics is difficult these days. Yes, if it is

:06:23.:06:28.

the sense that the Conservatives are running away with it, then other

:06:29.:06:31.

parties and Labour could benefit from the idea that there needs be a

:06:32.:06:35.

strong opposition. Carwyn Jones will be very much the face of this

:06:36.:06:39.

campaign in Wales, but the problem is he is not an MP or even the

:06:40.:06:46.

leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn as. Accusations have already

:06:47.:06:50.

been said that Welsh Labour is trying to pretend that Jeremy Corbyn

:06:51.:06:54.

does not exist. He will come to Wales and I think the Welsh and UK

:06:55.:06:58.

party will try to be cute about this and focus on areas they both agree

:06:59.:07:04.

on. The obvious example here is a campaign against austerity. Brexit

:07:05.:07:07.

really is problematic for Labour. The infighting we have seen in

:07:08.:07:11.

recent years really is problematic as well. It might be OK in a

:07:12.:07:15.

constituency like Merthyr Tydfil, where maybe there would be a serious

:07:16.:07:19.

challenge. But it could be a problem in areas where they will face the

:07:20.:07:23.

challenge. The added challenge is whether after the 8th of June,

:07:24.:07:29.

Labour reverts to cause the port in former coalfield areas are whether

:07:30.:07:32.

it remains the dominant parliamentary voice across Wales.

:07:33.:07:33.

Thank you. Cardiff University has been chosen

:07:34.:07:36.

as one of the major centres The ?13 million centre

:07:37.:07:39.

in the capital will be a significant section of the UK's

:07:40.:07:43.

new Dementia Research Institute. The other towels were

:07:44.:07:45.

outside, weren't they? From preparing a meal

:07:46.:07:53.

to doing the laundry, 54-year-old Karen Kitch

:07:54.:07:55.

from Llanharan, helping hand with daily

:07:56.:07:57.

tasks from her personal Three years ago, she was told by her

:07:58.:08:02.

doctor that she had He couldn't tell me how long before

:08:03.:08:11.

I was in the final part How it was going to be

:08:12.:08:16.

through the process. He said it was an

:08:17.:08:20.

individual disease. And have you noticed

:08:21.:08:22.

that the condition is My children say that over

:08:23.:08:23.

the last 12 months that they I think that I'm OK,

:08:24.:08:28.

but, obviously... They say that I have

:08:29.:08:31.

got a little bit worse. Cardiff University

:08:32.:08:42.

has already gained international recognition for its

:08:43.:08:44.

dementia research, but today's announcement means academics

:08:45.:08:47.

here can take their research a step further and it's all part of

:08:48.:08:49.

the ?250 million initiative funded Alzheimer's Society

:08:50.:08:52.

and Alzheimer's Research UK. The is to aim find new ways

:08:53.:08:54.

to diagnose, treat, prevent and cure for people with dementia and

:08:55.:08:57.

build on the work which is already I think for those people

:08:58.:09:00.

with dementia, we can give hope. Our research will

:09:01.:09:17.

help to design drugs, Probably to cure, to fix it,

:09:18.:09:19.

the problem, there is a long way to go, but just to modify,

:09:20.:09:23.

just to slow down the progression, that's

:09:24.:09:26.

Initially, the University will receive ?13

:09:27.:09:41.

million to become a UK dementia research Institute Centre.

:09:42.:09:44.

And the centre is set to become the biggest

:09:45.:09:46.

investment Wales has ever received first

:09:47.:09:47.

scientific study into the

:09:48.:09:48.

With the potential to be awarded a further ?70 million in

:09:49.:09:52.

research funding over the next five years.

:09:53.:09:53.

And up to 60 scientific researchers will be employed in

:09:54.:09:56.

The centre will be one of six across the UK.

:09:57.:10:07.

They will all collaborate to get the best results.

:10:08.:10:09.

This happened to Cancer Research about 20 years ago.

:10:10.:10:14.

Where a lot more investment was put in and sustained.

:10:15.:10:16.

And now we are reaping the benefits in terms of new

:10:17.:10:19.

And we needed this large injection of funds and

:10:20.:10:24.

this is what has happened, so we are very pleased.

:10:25.:10:26.

Back in her home, Karen welcomes the news.

:10:27.:10:39.

It's really needed, because I don't think it will be for

:10:40.:10:46.

my time, but it will be for my children, my grandchildren, because

:10:47.:10:49.

possibly they could have dementia when they are older.

:10:50.:10:51.

And if by that time they could find a cure, that

:10:52.:10:53.

The recruiter process will now begin at the centre

:10:54.:10:57.

as the fight against dementia continues.

:10:58.:11:04.

Police investigating a sexual assault on a woman in Barry

:11:05.:11:07.

are appealing for a man, who gave her a lift in his

:11:08.:11:10.

The woman had been out in the Park Crescent area

:11:11.:11:13.

It's believed a man in a silver Lexus offered her a lift.

:11:14.:11:17.

He's described as white, aged 50 to 60, with white hair

:11:18.:11:20.

and was wearing orange workmen style trousers.

:11:21.:11:30.

Doctors a struggling to cope with the influx

:11:31.:11:32.

Waiting times for patients in A E units in Wales held

:11:33.:11:36.

Just under 81% of patients were seen in less than four hours.

:11:37.:11:40.

The target of 95% has never been met.

:11:41.:11:41.

NHS Wales is still behind on waiting-time targets for patients

:11:42.:11:44.

to start cancer treatment, but there was a slight improvement

:11:45.:11:46.

in ambulance response times to life-critical calls.

:11:47.:11:51.

A tumble dryer at a flat in Llanrwst where two men died in a fire

:11:52.:11:54.

couldn't be ruled out as the cause despite a lack of

:11:55.:11:57.

An expert hired by the manufacturer Whirlpool has been presenting his

:11:58.:12:01.

findings at an inquest into the deaths of Bernard Hender

:12:02.:12:03.

One of the key questions surrounding the fire at this flat in the centre

:12:04.:12:14.

of Llanrwst is whether a tumble dryer was to blame.

:12:15.:12:16.

Seen on the left of these pictures, taken just days after the tragedy,

:12:17.:12:20.

it's the focus of the inquest into two men who died there.

:12:21.:12:22.

39-year-old Douglas McTavish, who ran a local bistro, and

:12:23.:12:25.

19-year-old Bernard Hender, who worked there as a chef, were unable

:12:26.:12:27.

to escape the thick smoke and flames which tore through the property

:12:28.:12:30.

Mr Hender's partner Garry Lloyd Jones was able to crawl

:12:31.:12:39.

out of the building but, suffered from severe carbon

:12:40.:12:41.

He said yesterday that he woke up in a smoke filled bedroom, before

:12:42.:12:45.

seeing flames coming from the drum of the tumble dryer,

:12:46.:12:48.

though it had been swtiched off with the door open the night

:12:49.:12:51.

Today, a member of the Insitute of Fire Engineers presented his

:12:52.:12:54.

Appointed by the manufacturer Whirlpool, he said there was no

:12:55.:12:58.

compelling evidence that the blaze started in the dryer, but it

:12:59.:13:07.

The company's former product safety director said between 2009 and 2014,

:13:08.:13:10.

there had been 28 reports of fires where the same type of door

:13:11.:13:13.

switch was implicated or couldn't be ruled out.

:13:14.:13:15.

But given that its dryers complete one billion

:13:16.:13:17.

cycles every 12 days, it hadn't triggered

:13:18.:13:19.

The inquest is expected to enter a third

:13:20.:13:22.

Ukip has been continuing its campaign for the local elections

:13:23.:13:28.

on the streets of Cardiff today, saying it offers a breath

:13:29.:13:30.

It says councils are under pressure because of immigration

:13:31.:13:34.

and it will work with other parties if they hold the balance of power.

:13:35.:13:37.

Here's our political correspondent Arwyn Jones.

:13:38.:13:43.

The champagne flowed last year after Ukip won seven

:13:44.:13:48.

seats to the Assembly and claimed they were a big part of the

:13:49.:13:51.

There were further celebrations after the

:13:52.:13:53.

Today, a handful of volunteers took to the

:13:54.:13:56.

streets in Cardiff to try to sell their message.

:13:57.:13:58.

While there were some happy customers, recently, there has been

:13:59.:14:09.

a view that the party has lost its cutting edge.

:14:10.:14:14.

They lost heavily in two important parliamentary by-elections

:14:15.:14:16.

in England recently and have struggled to attract candidates for

:14:17.:14:19.

On May the 4th, there will be 1,200 council seats up

:14:20.:14:22.

for grabs in 22 councils across Wales.

:14:23.:14:24.

But Ukip will only be fielding candidates in 80 of those

:14:25.:14:27.

We probably would have liked to have fielded more.

:14:28.:14:35.

Sometimes, our members aren't keen on standing, because

:14:36.:14:38.

they don't think sometimes running for Ukip is going to look good

:14:39.:14:40.

So we do struggle sometimes compared with the other parties.

:14:41.:14:48.

Ukip as it's willing to work with those other parties to

:14:49.:14:54.

hold the balance of power on some councils.

:14:55.:14:58.

Ukip go into these council elections with plenty of policies -

:14:59.:15:00.

from giving local people priority for social housing, lower council

:15:01.:15:03.

salaries for staff, to making sure that councils have to have referenda

:15:04.:15:06.

But the danger for the party will be no-one is listening.

:15:07.:15:11.

But having played such a prominent role in pulling the United Kingdom

:15:12.:15:13.

out of the European Union, now Brexit means Ukip

:15:14.:15:17.

After the last local elections five years

:15:18.:15:23.

ago, Ukip had two councillors in Wales.

:15:24.:15:26.

Unless it makes significant gains this year, the questions will

:15:27.:15:29.

continue about the party's future role on the UK's

:15:30.:15:31.

Refugees living here hold a special event to help build links

:15:32.:15:45.

with the community - and say thank you.

:15:46.:15:48.

And they're rugby's new boys, but they've taken the cup

:15:49.:15:50.

Now all they need is a trophy cabinet.

:15:51.:15:59.

A charity is calling for a respite centre,

:16:00.:16:02.

the first of its kind in Wales , for people with kidney disease.

:16:03.:16:05.

Kidney Wales say it would allow patients to continue their dialysis

:16:06.:16:07.

treatment whilst holidaying with loved ones.

:16:08.:16:09.

Currently there are 10,000 people in Wales living with kidney disease.

:16:10.:16:11.

Do you want some chocolate? I don't want chocolate, I want sweets.

:16:12.:16:30.

Whatever the incentive, time together is the real treat

:16:31.:16:32.

He's waiting for his third kidney transplant.

:16:33.:16:35.

In the meantime, he has dialysis, where his blood is cleaned

:16:36.:16:38.

three times a week, for four hours at a time.

:16:39.:16:40.

And while the kids enjoy cake, mum, Gemma, will be raising

:16:41.:16:42.

The aim is to build a respite centre,

:16:43.:16:47.

the first in Wales, offering a space for families

:16:48.:16:50.

to have a holiday while loved ones continue treatment.

:16:51.:16:58.

For us as a family to go on holidays and things like that is such a

:16:59.:17:04.

struggle. It's not easy just to pick a holiday and go, because we still

:17:05.:17:08.

have to think of dialysis. A unit that they are trying to create will

:17:09.:17:10.

be so much easier for families. There are 1,400 patients

:17:11.:17:12.

on dialysis, which can take up And nine out of ten patients

:17:13.:17:17.

waiting for a transplant are waiting She's been on dialysis

:17:18.:17:21.

for a year and is getting used She's nervously planning

:17:22.:17:26.

her first holiday and dialysis abroad

:17:27.:17:29.

since her diagnosis, but just getting to this

:17:30.:17:30.

point has been hard. I've accepted it now. I did, you

:17:31.:17:45.

know... Have a little break down, but I have accepted it now. I have

:17:46.:17:48.

to build my life around this, because I had been about before and

:17:49.:17:53.

it's just since this, I haven't. I am going to give it a try.

:17:54.:17:56.

Now she has her dialysis at home every night.

:17:57.:18:01.

Wherever she goes, so does her machine,

:18:02.:18:03.

though she'd like to leave it far behind.

:18:04.:18:07.

I got 11 hours on dialysis, ten cycles, so I have that in the night,

:18:08.:18:15.

everything all day. I did have it transpired, but then I had to take

:18:16.:18:19.

that out. I want another transplant so I can go to Disneyland.

:18:20.:18:21.

stopping at dialysis centres to hear more experiences

:18:22.:18:26.

like Shaun's and Gemma's, Mary's and Summer's,

:18:27.:18:28.

but they won't sit down for long, the walk is the first step

:18:29.:18:31.

Thousands of Syrian refugees have arrived in the UK

:18:32.:18:42.

400 of them have been welcomed in Wales.

:18:43.:18:45.

Today in Ystradgynlais, at the top of the Swansea Valley,

:18:46.:18:48.

six Syrian families came together to put on a special cultural event
