Plaid Cymru Leader, Ieuan Wyn Jones AM has paid tribute to the actor Philip Madoc following the sad news of his death:

“Philip Madoc was a great actor with such a wonderful voice as well as being a committed friend of Wales. He was a great supporter of Plaid and the cause of Wales was very close to his heart.

"Whenever I met him, he was always extremely enthusiastic about Wales’ potential as a nation and determined to do what he could to support the party’s work.

He will also be remembered for his many great acting roles, from drama such as the life of Lloyd George to comedy when he played the U boat captain in that wonderful episode of Dad’s Army. He will be sorely missed.”
