Okay, so we’re a few hours behinds with the news, but I was out having a life. James Graham and Anders Hanson were first up, and here’s what the BBC say:

The leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats Lembit Opik has announced he is to stand down from the post. He told the party’s autumn conference that he was doing so after six years so that the positions of assembly group leader and Welsh party leader could be decided at the same time. Assembly group leader Mike German is due to announce his intentions about his own future to delegates on Sunday.
