Jonathan Edwards MP heard from his constituents,who were among an estimated 12,000 people lobbying their MPs for urgent action on the natural environment and climate change.

In the largest-ever environmental lobby of parliament, people from all corners of the UK were represented, with at least 300 MPs coming out to meet with their constituents.

The Carmarthen East and Dinefwr MP was taken to meet constituents in the area surrounding the Palace of Westminster. At 14:00 lobbyists rang phone alarms and alarm clocks to symbolise that 'the time is now to act'.

The lobby is urging parliament to pass ambitious new laws that create a healthier environment for people and wildlife, and to support measures that end the UK's contribution to climate change by 2045.

Recently, the Senedd voted in favour of a Plaid Cymru motion declaring a Climate Emergency. This was the first parliament on these islands to make such a declaration.

Mr Edwards said: "It is clear that the climate and environmental crisis is firmly in the mainstream and is an important issue held dear by many of my constituents.

"I'll be working to make sure their voice is heard in the UK parliament at this critical moment for climate, nature and people.

"Recently, my colleagues in Plaid Cymru led the charge in Wales with the Senedd voting to declare a Climate Emergency.

"Plaid Cymru will continue to support bold, new ideas to tackle the climate crisis in both the Senedd and in Westminster."

Tanya Steele, Chief Executive at WWF, said: "Public concern for the environment is at an all-time high, and for good reason. We are destroying the planet, and jeopardising the survival of people and wildlife.

"Our leaders must make bold decisions now and commit to invest in technology and policies that accelerate emissions reductions and put nature on the path to recovery."
