Good evening.

0:00:150:00:17

A body found in the ruins of a collapsed building

0:00:170:00:20

at Didcot Power Station has been identified as

0:00:200:00:22

Christopher Huxtable, from Swansea.

0:00:220:00:24

The 34-year-old had been missing since the collapse in February.

0:00:240:00:26

The MP for Swansea East, Carolyn Harris - says his family

0:00:260:00:29

have suffered mental torture for the last six months.

0:00:290:00:31

Rhiannon Wilkins reports.

0:00:310:00:34

The early hours of Wednesday morning

0:00:340:00:37

and the team searching for the three workers still missing

0:00:370:00:40

at the Didcot power station, form a guard of honour

0:00:400:00:43

as a body was found.

0:00:430:00:45

Thames Valley Police today confirmed it was formally identified

0:00:450:00:48

as Christopher Huxtable and sent their thoughts

0:00:480:00:51

to his family in Swansea, who are now being supported

0:00:510:00:54

by specially trained officers.

0:00:540:00:57

The family had previously criticised the rescue operation

0:00:570:01:01

for being too slow.

0:01:010:01:04

The MP for Swansea East Carolyn Harris today paid tribute

0:01:040:01:07

to Mr Huxtable.

0:01:070:01:08

Very sad.

0:01:080:01:11

My heart and my prayers go to the family who have been waiting

0:01:110:01:14

desperately for Christopher's body to be found.

0:01:140:01:17

They can now have closure.

0:01:170:01:19

They can say goodbye to Christopher and they can grieve his loss.

0:01:190:01:22

The building was due for demolition when it partially collapsed

0:01:220:01:26

in February killing Michael Collins from Teesside,

0:01:260:01:29

Ken Creswell and John Shaw, both from Rotherham,

0:01:290:01:31

are still missing.

0:01:310:01:34

The main section was brought down using exposes in July and the search

0:01:340:01:38

for the remaining men continues.

0:01:380:01:42

Around 100 protestors gathered in Cardiff

0:01:420:01:44

to voice their opposition to Wales' vote to leave

0:01:440:01:48

the European Union in June.

0:01:480:01:50

It was one of the demonstrations organised across several UK cities

0:01:500:01:53

by the group "March for Europe" - calling for stronger ties

0:01:530:01:56

with the EU.

0:01:560:01:58

But campaigners from the Leave side say the referendum result six weeks

0:01:580:02:01

ago must be accepted.

0:02:010:02:04

Yes, the vote went one way but there was

0:02:040:02:07

no alternative offered and, I think, in any democracy,

0:02:070:02:10

any decision is open to challenge.

0:02:100:02:14

We don't close down debate after general elections,

0:02:140:02:16

opposition parties continue to argue their case and I think that

0:02:160:02:20

it's absolutely right that people in this country continues to argue

0:02:200:02:24

the case for Britain's partnership with Europe.

0:02:240:02:28

What's important now is that we don't give tags to people.

0:02:280:02:31

We don't say "Brexiteers", we don't say people were "Remainders".

0:02:310:02:34

We actually all come together in the best interests of Britain

0:02:340:02:36

and, indeed, Europe.

0:02:360:02:38

By continuing to fight the referendum campaign

0:02:380:02:40

that was decided by the vote on June 23, actually,

0:02:400:02:43

is doing no one any favours.

0:02:430:02:46

The owners of the former Friction Dynamic site in Caernarfon

0:02:460:02:49

have been urged to develop the site before it falls

0:02:490:02:51

into further delapidation.

0:02:510:02:53

Plaid Cymru politicians, Hywel Francis and Sian Gwenllian

0:02:530:02:56

say they plan to meet with the new owners later

0:02:560:02:59

this month, and have called on them to bring skilled jobs to the site.

0:02:590:03:04

The 27-acre site has laid empty since the factory closed in 2008.

0:03:040:03:09

Arriva Trains Wales has been trialling a new system in Cardiff

0:03:090:03:11

today, to try and avoid long passenger queues for trains

0:03:110:03:14

after major events.

0:03:140:03:16

Both Central and Queen Street stations are being used,

0:03:160:03:18

for different destinations.

0:03:180:03:21

30,000 people were expected at the Principality Stadium

0:03:210:03:25

for the Monster Jam truck event today,

0:03:250:03:26

and Arriva wants to iron out

0:03:260:03:30

issues before 74,000 people attend the Champions League final next May.

0:03:300:03:36

War veteran and author, Eileen Younghusband

0:03:360:03:38

has died, at the age of 95.

0:03:380:03:41

She worked in the Filter Room - the secret hub of Britain's air

0:03:410:03:44

defence, during the second World War, tracking enemy aircraft.

0:03:440:03:46

She moved to Wales in 1984 and campaigned on health

0:03:460:03:49

and education issues -

0:03:490:03:52

earning her the British Empire Medal in 2012.

0:03:520:03:55

Her latest book for children was published

0:03:550:03:57

only weeks before her death.

0:03:570:04:01

Rugby, and Cardiff Blues take on Edinburgh in the Pro12

0:04:010:04:03

a little later tonight - but a disappointing afternoon

0:04:030:04:05

at home for the Scarlets.

0:04:050:04:07

They took on Munster - who were the better side -

0:04:070:04:09

beating them 13-23.

0:04:090:04:13

And in the football, in League Two Newport's game

0:04:130:04:15

was abandoned at half time because of a water-logged pitch

0:04:150:04:19

- a frustrating one for Barnet after scoring within 23 seconds -

0:04:190:04:22

the fastest goal scored in the English football

0:04:220:04:24

league this season, but it won't count when the game is replayed.

0:04:240:04:28

And in the National League it was a two-all draw for Wrexham

0:04:280:04:31

away to Maidstone United.

0:04:310:04:34

Let's take a look at the weather, and the wet and windy weather

0:04:340:04:37

will clear through the evening,

0:04:370:04:38

to leave occasionally clear spells,

0:04:380:04:40

and scattered - perhaps heavy - showers.

0:04:400:04:42

Further showers will develop in the north by dawn,

0:04:420:04:45

with temperatures down to around 13 Celsius.

0:04:450:04:47

Then tomorrow morning, we'll see scattered showers,

0:04:470:04:49

becoming fewer and further between with longer sunny spells

0:04:490:04:52

developing by the afternoon.

0:04:520:04:54

Top temperature 20 celsius.

0:04:540:05:00

That's Wales Today - I'll be back tomorrow

0:05:000:05:02

evening at ten to six, hope you can join me then,

0:05:020:05:04

but for now, thanks for watching, and enjoy your evening.
