'Not confident'

Veteran Labour politician Julie Morgan has admitted she is not feeling confident of retaining her Welsh Assembly election seat.

The 71-year-old former social worker won the Cardiff North constituency from the Conservatives in the 2011 poll in a close-run contest and said she expects it to go to the wire again this time around.

Mrs Morgan said: "I'm not confident. I'm prepared for whatever the result will be. The Cardiff North constituency has changed hands a few times between Labour and the Conservatives in both assembly and parliamentary elections."
