That's it.

Good evening.

0:00:140:00:14

Labour and Plaid Cymru have agreed on new plans for how they believe

0:00:140:00:18

Wales and the UK should exit the European Union.

0:00:180:00:20

First Minister Carwyn Jones and Plaid leader Leanne Wood say

0:00:200:00:23

immigration controls should be tightened, but the UK

0:00:230:00:26

should still participate in the tariff-free single market.

0:00:260:00:30

The two leaders have been in talks for months about how Wales

0:00:350:00:38

and the UK should go about Brexit.

0:00:380:00:41

The Scottish and Northern Irish Governments have

0:00:410:00:43

outlined their proposals, now we get a flavour

0:00:430:00:46

of the view from Cardiff Bay.

0:00:460:00:48

In a Sunday Times article they say their plans highlight...

0:00:480:00:52

But they want a system which...

0:00:560:01:00

Some are warning that clarity is needed as soon as possible

0:01:070:01:10

to avoid jobs being lost to the continent.

0:01:100:01:13

Already we see haemorrhaging of jobs from the City of London,

0:01:130:01:16

and they provide 12% of the income of this country.

0:01:160:01:20

That is going to impact on jobs.

0:01:220:01:23

Not just jobs, but our services, hospitals, schools, and people need

0:01:230:01:27

to understand this is not just about jobs, it is about their

0:01:270:01:30

services and what will happen in Wales in the future.

0:01:300:01:34

Keeping membership of the single market, the tariff-free trading

0:01:340:01:37

agreement within the countries of the EU and some others,

0:01:370:01:40

is seen as being important to Wales in particular.

0:01:400:01:43

This chart shows how much of our exports, over two thirds,

0:01:430:01:47

goes to the EU compared with the rest of the world.

0:01:470:01:50

Carwyn Jones and Leanne Wood have said immigration from the EU is not

0:01:500:01:55

a big problem in Wales, despite representing

0:01:550:01:56

constituencies which voted strongly to leave the EU.

0:01:560:02:00

Opponents said they are trying to rerun the referendum campaign.

0:02:000:02:04

What is important is we are able to trade and we can get

0:02:060:02:09

access, but we get access on a level playing field.

0:02:090:02:12

The important thing people told us in the referendum was that

0:02:120:02:15

sovereignty needed to come back to the UK and decisions

0:02:150:02:19

be made here.

0:02:190:02:21

If you accept that, you can move forward, but sadly,

0:02:210:02:24

Labour politicians and Plaid are unable to come

0:02:240:02:27

to terms with that.

0:02:270:02:29

After last week we have a clearer idea of what leading

0:02:290:02:32

politicians want from Brexit, but agreeing on those plans seems

0:02:320:02:37

as unlikely as ever.

0:02:370:02:40

Meanwhile, Labour peer Lord Peter Hain says he will not be

0:02:400:02:43

voting to trigger Article 50, because he says it

0:02:430:02:45

will damage Welsh jobs.

0:02:450:02:47

The former Welsh Secretary, who now sits in the House of Lords,

0:02:470:02:50

said he acknowledged the referendum result and respected it,

0:02:500:02:55

but said people were not expecting a deal that would be damaging

0:02:550:02:57

to the most vulnerable.

0:02:570:02:59

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said all his MPs would be told to approve

0:02:590:03:02

the triggering of Article 50, the process by which

0:03:020:03:05

the UK leaves the EU.

0:03:050:03:09

I am concerned about the damage to Wales, to our jobs

0:03:090:03:12

and to our most-vulnerable citizens.

0:03:120:03:15

That is why in all conscience and principle I cannot vote

0:03:150:03:19

to trigger Article 50 on the basis of this extreme right-wing agenda

0:03:190:03:25

the Prime Minister has promised.

0:03:250:03:28

The Labour Party is united on that.

0:03:280:03:30

People may take a different tactical position at this stage,

0:03:300:03:34

but we are united in opposing this hard, right-wing Brexit.

0:03:340:03:38

A mother and her eight-year-old son have gone missing

0:03:390:03:41

from their home on Anglesey.

0:03:410:03:43

The family of 36-year-old Elen Jones and Lewis Rhys,

0:03:430:03:46

who live in Menai Bridge, have not seen them since Tuesday.

0:03:460:03:49

North Wales Police believe they are travelling

0:03:490:03:51

in a gold-coloured Citroen Zara, and have appealed for

0:03:510:03:54

sightings of the pair.

0:03:540:03:57

Police in Cheshire say a man was arrested during yesterday's

0:03:570:04:01

Chester versus Wrexham football match in relation to

0:04:010:04:03

a racially-aggravated public-order offence.

0:04:030:04:06

It is believed to relate to comments directed at Wrexham

0:04:060:04:09

striker Ntumba Massanka during the match yesterday.

0:04:090:04:13

It was the only arrest around the game, which was subject

0:04:130:04:16

to tighter policing as a so-called bubble match.

0:04:160:04:20

Two men are in hospital after suffering serious injuries

0:04:210:04:23

in a street attack in Cardiff.

0:04:230:04:25

The men, who are 22 and 23, were taken to the University

0:04:250:04:29

Hospital of Wales with injuries to their torsos.

0:04:290:04:32

It's believed they were attacked with a knife

0:04:320:04:34

in the Canton area of the city.

0:04:340:04:36

Police are still looking for the suspect.

0:04:360:04:39

Rugby, and Wales have asked the organisers

0:04:390:04:41

of the Six Nations Championship for permission to play

0:04:410:04:44

all their home games under a closed roof.

0:04:440:04:47

The Principality Stadium is the only ground in the tournament

0:04:470:04:50

with a retractable roof.

0:04:500:04:52

Wales play England on February 11th and Ireland a month later,

0:04:520:04:56

and both teams would have to agree for it to be closed.

0:04:560:05:00

Interim coach Rob Howley says it would provide

0:05:000:05:02

the best playing conditions.

0:05:020:05:05

Staying with rugby, and the remaining Welsh regions now

0:05:070:05:09

know who they will play in the quarterfinals

0:05:090:05:11

of the European Challenge Cup.

0:05:110:05:13

The Ospreys are at home to French club Stade Francais,

0:05:130:05:16

while the Cardiff Blues travel to Gloucester.

0:05:160:05:18

The ties will be played between March 30th and April 2nd.

0:05:180:05:22

Let's take a quick look at the weather.

0:05:240:05:26

It'll stay dry overnight, with some patchy cloud.

0:05:260:05:29

There'll be frost where we see clear spells developing, though,

0:05:290:05:32

as well as some patchy mist and fog.

0:05:320:05:34

Temperatures are likely to drop to around freezing.

0:05:340:05:37

Then tomorrow, fog in the east will be slow to clear

0:05:370:05:40

through the morning.

0:05:400:05:41

Elsewhere, it'll remain dry with some bright

0:05:410:05:43

sunny spells developing, but it will feel chilly in the east.

0:05:430:05:46

Top temperature 10 Celsius.

0:05:460:05:50

That's Wales Today.

0:05:500:05:51

We're back with our late bulletin just after the 10pm news.

0:05:510:05:53

Hope you can join us then.

0:05:530:05:55

For now, though, from everyone on the team, thanks for watching,

0:05:550:05:57

and enjoy your evening.

0:05:570:05:58

Bye bye.
