That's all from me, stay with us on BBC1 -

0:00:010:00:01

Good evening.

0:00:150:00:16

The First Minister has told BBC Wales he will not support any deal

0:00:160:00:19

on Brexit if it involves trade tariffs on goods produced in Wales.

0:00:190:00:23

Carwyn Jones will meet Theresa May in London tomorrow as part of talks

0:00:230:00:27

between the leaders of each part of the United Kingdom.

0:00:270:00:31

The UK government says countries in Europe will be keen

0:00:310:00:34

to trade with Britain, as our political correspondent,

0:00:340:00:36

Arwyn Jones, reports.

0:00:360:00:40

From the biggest companies based here such as Airbus,

0:00:400:00:43

Tata and Ford to the thousands of smaller firms up and down

0:00:430:00:46

the country, Wales exports a large number of goods,

0:00:460:00:50

especially to other EU countries, and the ability to do that freely

0:00:500:00:53

is an important way to remain competitive in a worldwide economy.

0:00:530:00:58

From their very first meeting in July, Carwyn Jones has reiterated

0:00:580:01:03

to Theresa May that his priority is that firms based in Wales can

0:01:030:01:07

continue to have access to the European markets

0:01:070:01:08

with any financial cost.

0:01:080:01:11

He'll meet with her again tomorrow in London, but he took

0:01:110:01:14

to the airwaves today to make his strongest remarks yet

0:01:140:01:16

about how important the issue is to him.

0:01:160:01:19

I would not under any circumstances support any deal that saw

0:01:190:01:23

the reintroduction of tariffs...

0:01:230:01:24

But would you have any choice?

0:01:240:01:27

Do the UK government want to go into negotiations with other

0:01:270:01:31

governments in the UK critical of them, or other governments

0:01:310:01:33

in the UK critical of any deal they might reach?

0:01:330:01:38

I don't think that's wise.

0:01:380:01:40

Much better for the UK government to look at getting support

0:01:400:01:42

at the beginning.

0:01:420:01:43

That's what negotiation is.

0:01:430:01:51

Mr Jones also said he accepted there would need to have limits on how

0:01:510:01:54

many citizens come to live and work in the UK and offered some ideas

0:01:540:01:57

on how a future system might work.

0:01:570:01:59

What we absolutely need is no barriers in place

0:01:590:02:01

for doctors coming here, for nurses coming here,

0:02:010:02:03

for professionals running companies.

0:02:030:02:04

No barriers to them and the same for our citizens going to other

0:02:040:02:07

European countries.

0:02:070:02:09

So a work visa system is what you are looking at, then?

0:02:090:02:11

There are models elsewhere where if you have a job,

0:02:110:02:13

you can come to work.

0:02:130:02:15

That is one possibility.

0:02:150:02:16

The UK Government refuses to give a running commentary on negotiations

0:02:160:02:18

on negotiations with EU countries, but today a leading figure

0:02:180:02:21

of the Brexit campaign told the BBC that other countries are going to be

0:02:210:02:25

keen to trade with the UK.

0:02:250:02:26

Nobody in continental Europe benefits from a reduction

0:02:260:02:28

in the ability to trade with the United Kingdom,

0:02:280:02:31

therefore, it is not going to be in their interest

0:02:310:02:34

to see tariffs imposed.

0:02:340:02:37

This is why I have always been convinced we will have tariff free

0:02:370:02:40

trade, we will have sensible trading arrangements, because it is

0:02:400:02:42

in both our interests that that should happen.

0:02:420:02:44

Tomorrow, the leaders of each part of the United Kingdom

0:02:440:02:46

will meet in Downing Street.

0:02:460:02:48

The Joint Ministerial Committee was last held two years ago.

0:02:480:02:50

Back then, there was a different prime minister and the only

0:02:500:02:53

referendum being discussed was for Scottish independence.

0:02:530:02:54

The vote on Brexit was a long way away.

0:02:540:02:57

Now the different administrations work together may well

0:02:570:03:01

have a dramatic impact on the UK's future relationship with the EU.

0:03:010:03:06

Tributes have been paid to a 41-year-old electrician

0:03:070:03:09

from Aberystwyth who was killed in a road accident

0:03:090:03:11

on the Costa del Sol yesterday.

0:03:110:03:13

Eifion Gwynne had flown to Malaga

0:03:130:03:14

to attend the funeral of a family friend who'd moved

0:03:140:03:17

to southern Spain.

0:03:170:03:21

It's reported Mr Gwynne, who was a member of

0:03:210:03:23

Aberystwyth Rugby Club, died after being hit by a car.

0:03:230:03:33

A former North Wales police superintendent is expected to appeal

0:03:330:03:35

against his convictions last week for historical child sex abuse.

0:03:350:03:38

79-year-old Gordon Anglesea is due to be sentenced next month

0:03:380:03:40

after being found guilty of four charges of indecent assault

0:03:400:03:42

against two boys in the 1980s.

0:03:420:03:44

His lawyers are due to consult with him over an appeal.

0:03:440:03:48

The development of the Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station will present

0:03:480:03:51

'significant challenges' to health services in North Wales -

0:03:510:03:53

according to the local Health Board.

0:03:530:03:57

Horizon, the company behind the project,

0:03:570:03:58

says the power station will bring significant investment to Anglesey.

0:03:580:04:03

But Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board says the island's

0:04:030:04:05

population could rise by about 12%

0:04:050:04:10

during construction, which could put pressure on GPs,

0:04:100:04:12

hospitals and community services.

0:04:120:04:20

The Welsh Government says plans to devolve the Wales and Borders

0:04:200:04:23

rail franchise would include existing cross-border services.

0:04:230:04:25

The UK Government said last year some services

0:04:250:04:26

that primarily serve England could be given to other firms.

0:04:260:04:30

There had been concerns cross border services would be

0:04:300:04:32

split at the border with passengers potentially

0:04:320:04:33

having to change trains.

0:04:330:04:38

Four companies are bidding to run the network.

0:04:380:04:44

A look at the weather forecast and it'll become

0:04:440:04:46

cloudier later in the night.

0:04:460:04:47

Tomorrow, outbreaks of rain will slowly move

0:04:470:04:49

northwards through the day.

0:04:490:04:50

Cloudy and grey, but winds lighter than today.

0:04:500:04:52

Top temperature 12 Celsius.

0:04:520:04:54

That's Wales Today.

0:04:540:04:55

We're back in Breakfast with updates from 6.25am.

0:04:550:04:57

From me and the weekend team, goodnight.
