Up to ten legless politicians were asked to leave and stumbled out at 2am, a source said.

They were said to have been caught red-handed, helping themselves to booze from an open bar. 

It was just days after the Welsh government ordered all pubs and restaurants to stop serving alcohol and close by 6pm. An investigation has been launched.

An assembly insider said: “They were absolutely legless, being very loud and  raucous. They  didn’t give a hoot about social distancing.”
