Alun Cairns: Labour let down communities by mismanaging EU aid

Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns has launched a fierce attack on the "mismanagement" of £4bn of EU grants by the Welsh Government intended to help the poorest areas.

He said that Labour had let down west Wales and the valleys.

Speaking at the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham, Mr Cairns said some areas, which had the most EU funds, voted more heavily to leave.

A spokesman for First Minister Carwyn Jones insisted EU-funded programmes had made a "big difference" in Wales.
