MP hospitalised by gang

A Plaid Cymru MP is recovering in hospital after being attack by a group of four youths on Saturday.

Adam Price, MP for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr, was set upon by a gang as he delivered balloons to his parent’s 50th wedding anniversary.

“A gang of youths set upon him randomly,” his spokesperson said.

“They had no idea who he was. It was an unprovoked attack. He is a bit battered and bruised and has a black eye, but no broken bones.”

According to the spokesperson, Mr Price and a friend walked past the youths when they began hurling insults at the pair.

“He didn’t respond,” the spokesperson said.

“But then the group of youths started hitting him and his friend in broad daylight.”

A police spokesman said: “Mr Price and his friend were taken to hospital for treatment. Four male suspects were arrested.”
