Labour's Lord Murphy admits difficult EU Remain campaign

Former Welsh Secretary Lord Murphy has admitted that the EU campaign has been difficult for the Remain side as the referendum approaches.

He joined another former Welsh Secretary, Lord Hain, and past and present First Ministers Rhodri Morgan and Carwyn Jones, on a visit to Pontypridd to boost the pro-EU cause in the south Wales valleys.

Lord Murphy said there had been support for Brexit in the region, but claimed there had been a definite change in mood.

However, UKIP Wales leader Nathan Gill said: "In recent weeks we have seen a growing trend towards a vote to leave the EU, and that doesn't appear to have changed in light of the tragic events of last week," referring to the killing of Labour MP Jo Cox.
