Nelson Mandela death: 'Beacon of liberty and justice' honoured

Nelson Mandela was a "bright beacon of liberty and justice shining across the world", said MP and lifelong anti-apartheid activist Peter Hain.

The Neath MP learned of his family friend's death at the age of 95 while attending the royal premiere of a film about Mr Mandela's life.

His tribute was just one of dozens paid in Wales on Friday.
