Leanne Wood Plaid Cymru calls for Wales 'new economy'


Plaid Cymru members have elected Leanne Wood as their new leader.

Ms Wood called for "real independence" for Wales after beating rivals Elin Jones and Lord Elis-Thomas.

She inherits the leadership of the third-largest party in the Welsh assembly behind the Labour government and Conservative opposition.

In her first interview as party leader with BBC Wales' political programme Dragon's Eye, Arwyn Jones asked how she planned to reverse the decline Plaid Cymru had suffered since the first Welsh assembly elections.
