Good evening.

0:00:110:00:12

A murder investigation is underway in Bangor tonight after a man

0:00:120:00:14

died after being injured outside a nightclub.

0:00:140:00:16

He's been as Henry Ayabowei - he was a 27 year old father

0:00:160:00:19

of two from Llangefni.

0:00:190:00:21

A 26 year old local man is being questioned on suspicion of murder.

0:00:210:00:24

Sachin Krishnan reports.

0:00:240:00:30

It was just before two o'clock yesterday morning

0:00:300:00:32

when officers were called

0:00:320:00:33

following reports that a man was unconscious outside

0:00:330:00:36

the Peep nightclub close to the centre of Bangor.

0:00:360:00:41

North Wales Police say he was injured following an assault and

0:00:410:00:43

their officers, along with paramedics, carried out

0:00:430:00:46

CPR before he was taken by ambulance to Ysbyty Gwynedd.

0:00:460:00:49

He was later taken to hospital in Stoke, where he died.

0:00:490:00:52

He was 27 and from Llangefni and has been described tonight

0:00:520:00:55

as a young family man.

0:00:550:01:05

The man originally arrested on suspicion of assault

0:01:140:01:16

is now being held at Caernarfon police station

0:01:160:01:18

after being arrested on suspicion of murder.

0:01:180:01:20

A major incident room has been set up

0:01:200:01:22

and a team of detectives are working to establish exactly what happened.

0:01:220:01:29

Officers want witnesses to come forward.

0:01:290:01:31

They are especially keen for anyone who was in the area of the club

0:01:310:01:34

on Dean Street with photos, video or dash cam footage from

0:01:340:01:37

between 1:30 and 2:15 on Saturday morning to contact them.

0:01:370:01:43

Universities should pay the voluntary living wage as part

0:01:430:01:45

of a "civic mission".

0:01:450:01:46

That's according to the Education Secretary, Kirsty Williams.

0:01:460:01:50

The minister told the Sunday Politics Wales programme she's also

0:01:500:01:52

calling for "much greater constraint" in setting

0:01:520:01:53

the pay packets of universities' highest earners.

0:01:530:01:55

Here's our Political Correspondent, Daniel Davies.

0:01:550:02:03

Anne-Marie is a cleaner at Cardiff University

0:02:030:02:05

and receives the living wage.

0:02:050:02:08

Cardiff is the only accredited living wage employer

0:02:080:02:10

among Welsh universities.

0:02:100:02:13

The Living Wage Foundation thinks people should earn

0:02:130:02:15

at least ?8.45 an hour to meet the cost of living,

0:02:150:02:18

that is higher than the UK Government's national living

0:02:180:02:22

wage which rose to ?7.50 this month for people aged 25 and over.

0:02:220:02:28

I had two jobs before to make ends meet

0:02:280:02:30

and it meant a lot of rushing around, you know,

0:02:300:02:33

working till three o'clock, going home to pick my daughter up

0:02:330:02:36

and then rush back to work, which was a nightmare.

0:02:360:02:39

I didn't have much time for anything else.

0:02:390:02:42

So when I came up here, it was great.

0:02:420:02:48

Paying the living wage cost Cardiff University ?600,000 a year.

0:02:480:02:50

The Welsh government headquarters is just over the road

0:02:500:02:53

from Cardiff University, The only Welsh university

0:02:530:02:59

We need those universities to recognise the power

0:02:590:03:01

that they have within our nation of Wales to do good.

0:03:010:03:03

Yes, to educate people, but to use their powers and

0:03:030:03:06

their resources, their facilities to contribute to the nation as a whole

0:03:060:03:09

and paying the living wage to all staff is an important part

0:03:090:03:11

of doing that.

0:03:110:03:12

Mrs Williams also called for a much greater constraint in the salaries

0:03:120:03:16

of senior staff.

0:03:160:03:17

In 2015, the vice chancellors of all Welsh

0:03:170:03:19

universities earned more than ?200,000, but senior salaries

0:03:190:03:23

were said to be broadly comparable with universities across the UK.

0:03:230:03:29

The umbrella group for higher education,

0:03:290:03:32

Universities Wales, said many institutions already have pay rates

0:03:320:03:34

that matched the voluntary living wage, even if they weren't

0:03:340:03:37

accredited living wage employers.

0:03:370:03:42

Last week, threats to jobs emerged

0:03:420:03:44

at University of Wales Trinity St David

0:03:440:03:48

and at the University of South Wales, a sign that universities

0:03:480:03:51

aren't feeling flush.

0:03:510:03:55

Onto football and Match of the Day is on next,

0:03:550:03:58

so if you don't want to know the Swansea City score,

0:03:580:04:00

now's the time to do something else.

0:04:000:04:04

The Swans are just a point above the Premier League relegation

0:04:040:04:07

zone after a frustrating goal-less draw with Middlesbrough.

0:04:070:04:08

The Swans enjoyed much of the possession but

0:04:080:04:10

could not force a goal.

0:04:100:04:17

In rugby, Stade Francais have beaten the Ospreys in a tense

0:04:170:04:19

European Challenge Cup quarter final at the Principality Stadium.

0:04:190:04:21

Despite being reduced to 14 men - they won by 21 points to 25.

0:04:210:04:28

It means there are no Welsh teams left in European competition.

0:04:280:04:33

A look at the weather forecast now and after a dry,

0:04:330:04:36

clear night with some frost, any mist or fog will clear to leave

0:04:360:04:39

a bright morning with sunny spells.

0:04:390:04:40

But cloud will thicken in the afternoon with rain moving

0:04:400:04:43

in from the west during the evening.

0:04:430:04:44

Top temperature 13 Celsius.

0:04:440:04:48
