Carl Sargeant AM

His body was found at his house in Connah's Quay in November 2017.

An inquest into the death of Welsh politician Carl Sargeant is due to resume later.
The AM for Alyn and Deeside AM was found at his home on November 7 2017, four days after he was sacked from his job as cabinet secretary for communities and children.
He was fired by then First Minister Carwyn Jones, following claims of inappropriate behaviour towards women.
His inquest was adjourned indefinitely in November last year after a decision was made to recall Mr Jones as a witness and to allow a legal challenge to be made.
Mr Jones, who stepped down from his role last December, had given evidence about the "pastoral care" of Mr Sargeant following his sacking, but the coroner's court heard a statement from Assembly Member Ann Jones had contradicted what he said.
Mr Jones is expected to appear again at the inquest at Ruthin County Hall on Monday, along with his chief special adviser Matt Greenough.
The AM for Bridgend had made a legal appeal to allow text messages relating to the behaviour of Mr Sargeant to be heard at the inquest.
The inquest is expected to conclude later in the week.
