Nathan Gill of the Brexit Party, who lives near Llangefni, said: ""This was the election that should never have taken place. The people of Wales have spoken once again: We are a Brexit nation. We want to leave the EU with a clean Brexit and that is what we have spoken for."

Mr Gill is married to his American wife Jana, and has five children. The family are practising Mormons.

Jill Evans (Plaid Cymru) said "I would like to thank Plaid Cymru for having the confidence in me to lead our party in this election. Many of these people [who voted for Plaid] voted Plaid for the first time because they share our convictions that Wales' future is in the European Union."

James Wells (Brexit Party) said: "We are not a flash in the pan and we will carry on fighting to respect the referendum in 2016."

Jackie Jones (Labour): "I will work hard to enhance social justice, union rights, action on climate change and ensure that Wales continues to maximise the benefits of EU Membership, adding that the people of Wales had voted 57 per cent for Remain-supporting parties. Wales is now clearly a remain nation. I shall therefore represent the views of the majority," she said.
