Mr Evans joins the team after two years in Parliament, having been elected as Member of Parliament for Islwyn in May 2010. Since then, he has been a longstanding campaigner for responsible dog ownership which is within the remit of the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Speaking after the announcement, Mr Evans said: ‘I am absolutely delighted to be joining Labour’s shadow environment team. The department has a brief which spreads far and wide covering everything from dangerous dogs to flooding and I am looking forward to holding the Tory-led government to account

Ms Creagh added: ‘I am delighted to welcome Chris to Labour’s Environment team at such an important time.  Chris will be helping to lead our fight back across the UK and holding this incompetent, out of touch government to account.
