Sacked Labour Minister Carl Sargeant Allegedly Kills Self

An Ex-Welsh Labour minister Carl Sargeant who faced a party into allegations about his personal conduct has allegedly taken his own life. 

Carl Sargeant, 49, lost his job as cabinet secretary for communities and children last Friday. He was suspended from Labour after the first minister learned of a number of alleged incidents involving women. Mr Sargeant, who was married and had two children, was found dead at his home in Connah's Quay, Flintshire, on Tuesday morning.

A family statement said they were "devastated beyond words" at the loss of "the glue that bound us together". He was the most kind and caring husband, father, son and friend. We are devastated beyond words, and we know our grief will be shared by all those who knew and loved him.

Mr Jones had said on Monday he felt he had no choice but to refer the matter to the party. Mr Sargeant had vowed to clear his name. The Welsh Assembly's business for Tuesday was cancelled as a mark of respect following his death, and meetings on Wednesday and Thursday will also not take place.
