A senior Welsh opposition politician who was in self-isolation over Covid-19 fears has tested negative for the disease.

Tory Senedd leader Paul Davies had not attended proceedings of the Welsh Parliament on Tuesday and Wednesday.

His colleague Suzy Davies stood in for the leader at First Minister's Questions this week.

A party group spokesman earlier said the Senedd member had felt "quite under the weather".

Mr Davies confirmed his test result on Twitter: "Many thanks for the kind messages. I am pleased to report that the Covid-19 test came back negative."

He was elected to his post in 2018 following the resignation of Andrew RT Davies.
