Alyn and Deeside Welsh by-election analysis by Daniel Davies
BBC Wales political correspondent Daniel Davies asks how newly-elected AM Jack Sargeant will get along with First Minister Carwyn Jones - the man who sacked his father.

'Let's be kind to each other'

Jack Sargeant appealed for kindness in politics and life in general after being elected to succeed his late father Carl as the Welsh Assembly member for Alyn and Deeside.

The youngest ever AM at the age of 23, Jack Sargeant increased Welsh Labour's majority in the Flintshire seat.

In his speech following the declaration at Connah's Quay, Jack Sargeant said that being kind was "a message I learnt from my dad".

Constituency Profile

Alyn and Deeside in the north-east of Wales borders Cheshire and Merseyside.

The Airbus factory in Broughton is one of the constituency's biggest employers with around 6,000 staff. The Shotton steelworks - which was a huge local employer - closed in 1980. Tata Steel still has a presence on the site manufacturing specialist products although this is now under threat following the company's announcement that it is considering selling off its UK operations. The area was once home to Victorian Prime Minister William Gladstone, who lived in one of Hawarden's two castles. Gladstone's Library in the town is the UK's only residential library. One of England's all-time top goalscorers, Michael Owen, was born in the area.

The seat has been held in the Assembly by Labour since 1999. At the 2011 elections, Carl Sargeant won with more than 50% of the vote. The Conservatives came second with 28%.
