Tory AM criticises Mark Reckless UKIP defection to party

The defection of a UKIP AM to the Welsh Conservatives has left a Tory AM feeling "unsure of his status".

A row has broken out after Mark Reckless joined the Conservatives, despite rules stating only party members can be in the assembly group.

It caused Monmouth AM Nick Ramsay to ask: "Am I a member of a Welsh Conservative group or am I a member of some kind of hybrid independent group?"

BBC Wales political editor Nick Servini reports.
