Caernarfon Town Council has become the sixth in Wales to vote to support independence for Wales.

Councillor Cai Larsen, who represents the Seiont ward, said he was “particularly proud to say that Caernarfon Royal Town Council had voted to support YesCymru’s campaign to win independence for Wales earlier tonight. Well done all.”

Caernarfon’s vote came almost exactly 50 years to the Investiture of Charles, Prince of Wales in Caernarfon castle on 1 July 1969.

Bethesda Community Council became the fifth to vote to back independence on Saturday, after a motion was presented by chairman Bleddyn Williams.

Nefyn Town Council, Ffestiniog Town Council and Porthmadog Town Council all voted to back independence in June.

Machynlleth Town Council, in Powys, became the first to formally back Welsh independence in May.
