Good evening.

0:00:160:00:17

Swansea City will be playing in the Premier League

0:00:170:00:19

next season after all.

0:00:190:00:21

Their convincing win over Sunderland yesterday paved the way

0:00:210:00:24

to avoid relegation.

0:00:240:00:26

But the celebrations started in earnest for players and fans

0:00:260:00:29

after Crystal Palace's 4-0 victory over Hull this afternoon.

0:00:290:00:33

Top flight football guarantees millions of pounds for the club

0:00:330:00:35

and the local economy.

0:00:350:00:37

More on this from Nicola Smith.

0:00:370:00:42

This is the moment the Swansea players were waiting for.

0:00:420:00:45

CHEERING AND SHOUTING

0:00:450:00:49

Angel Rangel posted this video on social media

0:00:490:00:52

as Crystal Palace scored a third goal,

0:00:520:00:55

putting Swansea's future beyond doubt.

0:00:550:00:58

And at the Smith Arms in Swansea, jubilation.

0:00:580:01:01

# Swansea City! #

0:01:010:01:04

I feel sorry for the other fans, for the Hull fans, but I'm a Jack

0:01:040:01:07

at the end of the day, you know, and over the moon!

0:01:070:01:10

Fantastic.

0:01:100:01:11

I can't believe it, I can't believe what's happened, like.

0:01:110:01:14

We are still up in the Premiership and that's where we needed to be.

0:01:140:01:17

It all started to feel possible yesterday when Swansea

0:01:170:01:19

beat Sunderland 2-0 at the Stadium of Light.

0:01:190:01:22

Fernando Llorente was on form, scoring in the ninth minute before

0:01:220:01:26

Kyle Naughton doubled the lead, his first for the club.

0:01:260:01:30

And it's 2-0!

0:01:300:01:32

The goal gave us that lift and that confidence to go on and play.

0:01:320:01:35

I would have been happy coming in at, you know, 1-0,

0:01:350:01:40

but a great moment just before the half gave us that platform

0:01:400:01:43

to go on and get the victory.

0:01:430:01:46

Paul Clement became Head Coach in January, the third this season,

0:01:460:01:50

and the Supporters' Trust believe he has made all the difference.

0:01:500:01:53

He has obviously worked well with the players, trained them hard,

0:01:530:01:56

he has got the respect, and it has worked,

0:01:560:02:00

it has all clicked into place.

0:02:000:02:02

So, what now?

0:02:020:02:03

One former Swansea player told me new signings must be top

0:02:030:02:06

of the club's to-do list.

0:02:060:02:09

For next season, the squad that they have got there

0:02:090:02:11

at the moment is only good enough to stay in the bottom half.

0:02:110:02:14

I think the club need to buy three or four players, they have

0:02:140:02:18

to look at their structure, at how much they pay for players.

0:02:180:02:22

It is millions and millions of pounds to be in

0:02:220:02:24

the Premier League, per club.

0:02:240:02:27

So, Swansea have got to splash the cash, really,

0:02:270:02:28

but on good, sensible buys, and hopefully Paul Clement

0:02:280:02:31

is the man to do that.

0:02:310:02:33

It is perhaps an understatement to say this has been a turbulent

0:02:330:02:36

season for Swansea City.

0:02:360:02:38

But this afternoon, the happy ending so many had dreamed of.

0:02:380:02:42

So, there will be Premier League football in the city

0:02:420:02:45

for another year.

0:02:450:02:46

That will generate millions for the club and the local area.

0:02:460:02:50

And one more thing is for sure, the Liberty Stadium will be bouncing

0:02:500:02:53

when they play their final game of the season there next Sunday.

0:02:530:02:59

Nicola Smith reporting.

0:02:590:03:01

A man has been charged with the murder of

0:03:010:03:03

a mother-of-two from Kinmel Bay.

0:03:030:03:05

Police say that a body found yesterday is that of Tracey Kearns,

0:03:050:03:08

who went missing a week ago.

0:03:080:03:10

48-year-old Anthony James Bird is due to appear before

0:03:100:03:12

Llandudno magistrates tomorrow.

0:03:120:03:17

A man has died after falling whilst walking in Snowdonia.

0:03:170:03:20

Police were called after reports that someone had

0:03:200:03:21

slipped in the North Gully on Tryfan Mountain just after midday.

0:03:210:03:25

The man, believed to be in his 50s or 60s and from Exeter,

0:03:250:03:28

was walking with his daughter at the time.

0:03:280:03:31

He was airlifted to hospital, but was later pronounced dead.

0:03:310:03:36

Neil Hamilton says the general election has come

0:03:360:03:38

at a "very inopportune" time for his party.

0:03:380:03:40

Ukip's leader in the Assembly told the Sunday Politics Wales

0:03:400:03:43

programme the new leader, Paul Nuttall, still had to

0:03:430:03:46

bed himself in and communicate what the party is for.

0:03:460:03:50

But he said Ukip was here to stay.

0:03:500:03:54

Sport, and Welsh cyclist Geraint Thomas' hopes of winning

0:03:540:03:57

the Giro d'Italia suffered a major blow as he was involved in a crash

0:03:570:04:00

caused by a police motorbike 15km from the finish on stage nine.

0:04:000:04:05

Team Sky's Thomas, who was second at the start of the day,

0:04:050:04:08

finished over five minutes behind the leader.

0:04:080:04:10

He described the incident as "ridiculous".

0:04:100:04:15

Cricket, and Glamorgan have beaten Kent in a One-Day Cup game

0:04:150:04:18

in dramatic fashion.

0:04:180:04:19

The home team posted a mammoth total of 356,

0:04:190:04:22

which proved to be just too much for Kent, who were bowled out

0:04:220:04:25

for 341 runs.

0:04:250:04:27

It was a thrIlling day for the crowd at St Helen's in Swansea,

0:04:270:04:30

who witnessed 35 sixes being hit,

0:04:300:04:32

equalling the UK record for one game.

0:04:320:04:36

Let's take a quick look now at what the weather

0:04:360:04:39

has in store for us.

0:04:390:04:40

After a dry night, we can expect rain to arrive

0:04:400:04:42

from the west by dawn.

0:04:420:04:44

Monday will be largely overcast with rain for much of the day

0:04:440:04:46

across western areas.

0:04:460:04:47

Staying windy, with highs of 17 Celsius.

0:04:470:04:51
