A former Plaid Cymru AM has been charged with three counts of making indecent images of children.

Simon Thomas quit the Senedd and his party after being arrested in July.

Helen Mary Jones, who was next on Plaid's regional list for the Mid and West Wales seat, returned to the assembly to replace Mr Thomas in August.
