Former Welsh first minister and agricultural ‘ambassador’ Rhodri Morgan has died, aged 77.

Former Welsh first minister and agricultural ‘ambassador’ Rhodri Morgan has died, aged 77.

 

Mr Morgan spent nine years serving as first minister between 2000 and 2009.

 

Alongside his stint in parliament, he was also championed for his commitment to the agricultural industry and farmers in Wales, where he was known to have rural communities ‘close to his heart’.

 

The Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW) described him as an ‘ambassador for Wales’ and said he had been a great friend and supporter.

 

FUW President Glyn Roberts said: “It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of former First Minister Rhodri Morgan, who has always been a friend to this Union.

 

Ambassador

“He understood the challenges farmers here in Wales face and we worked closely with him, most notably during the Foot and Mouth crisis.

 

“I can only describe him as an ambassador for Wales, a visionary for devolution and someone who had our rural Welsh communities and family farms close to his heart and cared deeply for them. He will be missed by many.”
