The Welsh health minister during the Covid pandemic has admitted that losing his WhatsApp messages is a “real embarrassment”.

Vaughan Gething told the UK Covid Inquiry that his messages were wiped in 2022 during a phone upgrade.

On Saturday he will find out if he has won the contest to become Welsh Labour leader and become Wales’s first minister.
