A Flintshire Assembly Member has won the ‘AM to watch’ award at this year’s ITV Politician of the Year event.

Hannah Blythyn AM for Delyn won the award at a gala dinner held in Cardiff on Tuesday evening.

Sponsored by ITV Cymru Wales’ and hosted by political editor Adrian Masters and presenter Catrin Haf Jones the awards are now in their 12th year.

The award was handed to her “for being one of an exceptional crop of new AMs who’ve made their mark early in the new Assembly. Her election as chair of the Labour group put her ahead of the rest.”

Hannah, who was presented with the award from ITV News At Ten presenter Tom Bradby, grew up in Connah’s Quay and went to school at St Richard Gwyn in Flint.

Before becoming an AM Hannah worked as a political and policy officer for the Unite union, she won the the Delyn seat back in May with a majority of more than 3,500 votes.

Hannah has been a vocal supporter of Shotton steel workers in her six months at the National Assembly, as ministers and AM’s focused on Port Talbot the Delyn AM made sure Shotton steel remained at the forefront of discussions.

Hannah said;

“After just six months in the National Assembly for Wales, I was humbled and surprised to learn I had won AM to watch at the ITV Wales Politician of the Year awards. It is and will always be a privilege to serve the community that shaped me as Assembly Member for Delyn.”

An hour-long programme, Welsh Politician of the Year 2016, will be broadcast on ITV Wales on Tuesday the 13th December at 10.40pm
