Plaid-Liberal Democrats in deal over budget talks

Plaid Cymru and the Liberal Democrats have agreed to co-operate with each other in future negotiations over the Welsh government's budget.

Party leaders Leanne Wood and Kirsty Williams announced the deal at a joint news conference.

They said that in future Welsh ministers would have to negotiate with one team representing both parties.

The two leaders said the economy, education and health would be their priorities when talks start in the autumn.

With 30 out of the 60 seats in the assembly chamber, Labour needs support from one of the other parties to get its budgets passed.
