Good evening.

0:00:130:00:15

The leader of the Welsh Conservatives has made a pitch

0:00:150:00:17

for what he calls the centre ground of politics.

0:00:170:00:27

Andrew RT Davies said Labour and Plaid Cymru had

0:00:320:00:34

lurched to the left.

0:00:340:00:35

Plaid called the attack bluster, while Labour said it was tired.

0:00:350:00:38

Our Parliamentary Correspondent reports from the Conservative

0:00:380:00:39

Conference in Birmingham.

0:00:390:00:40

Party conference time and the Conservatives

0:00:400:00:42

have their opponents in their sights.

0:00:420:00:43

Their leader in Wales believes there are votes to be won

0:00:430:00:46

on the centre ground.

0:00:460:00:47

In an article for the Sunday Times, Andrew RT Davies says the Tories,

0:00:470:00:51

who came third in the Assembly elections, can win over former

0:00:510:00:53

Labour and Plaid Cymru supporters.

0:00:530:00:55

I believe that I'm offering the leadership that the Welsh

0:00:550:00:57

Conservatives need.

0:00:570:00:59

I work closely with my colleagues in Westminster.

0:00:590:01:04

We have a solid group in the Assembly.

0:01:040:01:06

We have a robust group in local government

0:01:060:01:08

in all parts of Wales, and we are offering

0:01:080:01:10

those alternatives..

0:01:100:01:11

those alternatives.

0:01:110:01:12

What I'm saying to you is Wales can't afford to drift the extremes.

0:01:120:01:15

Either on the left or on the right.

0:01:150:01:17

We need to govern from the centre.

0:01:170:01:20

Leaving the European Union was once seen as an issue

0:01:200:01:21

for the political fringe.

0:01:210:01:22

But the referendum in June changed everything.

0:01:220:01:24

And Welsh Conservatives now think that Brexit will be part

0:01:240:01:28

of their strategy for taking on the political centre ground.

0:01:280:01:32

We are not Ukip, you know we are a party of the centre,

0:01:320:01:35

that's great.

0:01:350:01:36

You say you are not Ukip, you are about to deliver

0:01:360:01:38

the Ukip policy of Brexit.

0:01:380:01:42

Well, that's one policy.

0:01:420:01:45

It was our policy to hold the referendum, to allow the people

0:01:450:01:48

of Britain to make that decision for themselves.

0:01:480:01:53

They have spoken clearly and the decision will

0:01:530:01:55

be carried through.

0:01:550:01:59

A message Theresa May reinforced in her speech.

0:01:590:02:00

The Prime Minister insisted there would be no opt out

0:02:000:02:03

from Brexit for any part of the UK.

0:02:030:02:05

Four police officers had to be taken to hospital after been

0:02:050:02:07

injured by two dogs whilst at a property in Haverfordwest.

0:02:070:02:10

Three men and two women have been arrested following the incident

0:02:100:02:13

in Goat Street yesterday afternoon.

0:02:130:02:14

One woman has now been released on bail.

0:02:140:02:16

All the officers were discharged after treatment.

0:02:160:02:24

Parents have been warned about an intruder at a Ceredigion

0:02:240:02:26

nursery, according to a letter seen by BBC Wales.

0:02:260:02:29

Someone trespassed into the green room at Camau Bach in Aberystwyth

0:02:290:02:31

from the outside play area.

0:02:310:02:32

Police are informing schools in the areas.

0:02:320:02:34

The nursery shut temporarily earlier this year after a boy

0:02:340:02:37

was left unattended on a minibus for two hours.

0:02:370:02:46

Sport now, and in boxing, Wales' Nathan Cleverly beat

0:02:460:02:48

Juergen Braehmer in Germany to claim the WBA regular

0:02:480:02:51

light-heavyweight title.

0:02:510:02:52

Braehmer was pulled out by his corner at the start of the seventh

0:02:520:02:55

round with a dislocated right elbow.

0:02:550:02:56

The 29-year-old is the first Welshman to lose and regain a world

0:02:560:02:59

title at the same weight.

0:02:590:03:09

I have a few downs, but I wanted to get this feeling back.

0:03:140:03:18

I am 29 now and I decided to come back and make it happen

0:03:180:03:21

for a second time, live the dream for a second time.

0:03:210:03:24

I've done it tonight, so proud.

0:03:240:03:25

I'm happy.

0:03:250:03:26

Rugby, and in the Pro12, a late penalty saw the Cardiff Blues

0:03:260:03:29

suffer their first defeat of the season losing

0:03:290:03:31

16-13 to Leinster.

0:03:310:03:32

It was a similar fate for the Ospreys who lost 9-7

0:03:320:03:34

to leaders Ulster after a late penalty from Paddy Jackson.

0:03:340:03:37

And the Scarlets got their second win of the season, beating

0:03:370:03:39

Treviso 22 points to 6.

0:03:390:03:44

More than 17,000 athletes have taken part in the Cardiff Half Marathon,

0:03:440:03:47

in what organisers described as a glorious festival of running

0:03:470:03:49

in the Welsh Capital.

0:03:490:03:50

Following today's success, it has now been announced

0:03:500:03:52

that the city will host a full international marathon next spring.

0:03:520:03:59

The majestic backdrop of Cardiff Castle was the starting

0:03:590:04:01

point for this gruelling run.

0:04:010:04:02

The Kenyans dominated.

0:04:020:04:06

This runner going on to set a course record.

0:04:060:04:09

Richie Powell from Carmarthenshire won the wheelchair race.

0:04:090:04:11

I travel all over the world.

0:04:110:04:12

But it is such a brilliant city and the support is tremendous.

0:04:120:04:15

I love coming home.

0:04:150:04:16

Griffiths was the first British runner across the line.

0:04:160:04:18

The Swansea Harrier two and a half minutes behind the Kenyan.

0:04:180:04:24

The Swansea Harrier two and a half minutes behind the Kenyan winner.

0:04:240:04:30

I'm quite pleased today.

0:04:300:04:32

One day I would like to come back and try and win the race,

0:04:320:04:39

so hopefully I can do that.

0:04:390:04:42

17,100 runners took part in this 13 mile route around the Welsh capital.

0:04:420:04:46

That makes it the second largest event of its type across the UK.

0:04:460:04:49

And what wonderful conditions for it.

0:04:490:04:50

As well as a world-class athletes, there was the usual mix of wacky

0:04:500:04:53

costumes and charity runners.

0:04:530:04:54

All helping to make this event so successful.

0:04:540:04:56

We staged the world half marathon last year very successfully.

0:04:560:04:58

That has taken it a stage higher now, as far as acceptability around

0:04:580:05:02

the globe is concerned.

0:05:020:05:03

So we go from strength to strength.

0:05:030:05:04

We are very very proud.

0:05:040:05:05

Following today's success, Cardiff will now host a full

0:05:050:05:08

marathon next April.
