The inquest into the death of former Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant is expected to start today.

Mr Sargeant was found dead at his home in Connah’s Quay on 7 November 2017 – four days after he was dismissed from the Welsh Government following allegations of inappropriate behaviour.

At a hearing in November 2017, north-east Wales coroner John Gittins was told that Mr Sargeant’s death was likely to have been due to hanging.

The coroner also commented that the death was “an apparent act of self harm”.

Mr Sargeant’s widow Bernie will be amongst the first to give evidence at Ruthin Coroner’s Court today.

Wales first minister Carwyn Jones, who was heavily criticised over his role in Mr Sargeant’s sacking, is expected to give evidence on Wednesday.

32 witnesses will give evidence during the five-day inquest.
