An investigation has been launched into allegations that the sacking of Carl Sargeant, the Welsh politician who was found dead four days after his dismissal, was leaked before he was told.

Sargeant apparently took his own life after he was sacked as a Welsh government minister amid allegations of harassment.

The former Labour minister in the Welsh assembly Leighton Andrews has said he believes others were told of the sacking before Sargeant.

The Welsh first minister, Carwyn Jones, has asked the permanent secretary, Shan Morgan, to examine the claims.
