Carwyn Jones sworn in as First Minister


Carwyn Jones has been sworn in as Wales's first minister and will start picking a cabinet.

Labour will govern alone, despite falling just short of a majority in last week's Welsh assembly election.

With half the seats in Cardiff Bay, Mr Jones has pledged to seek common ground with other parties.

He took the oath of office on Thursday at the Welsh assembly government's headquarters in central Cardiff, saying he had an "ambitious programme".
