Cynon Valley MP Ann Clwyd to stand down at election

Veteran MP Ann Clwyd has announced that she is to stand down at the 2015 general election.

The 76-year-old Labour politician has represented the Cynon Valley since winning a by-election in 1984.

She revealed her decision at the monthly meeting of the Cynon Valley Labour Party on Friday, after informing party leader Ed Miliband.

But Ms Clwyd said she would still campaign and called it "not her swansong", but a "pause for breath".

David Cornock reports.
