General election: Full list of 60 'Remain alliance' seats as Lib Dems, Greens and Plaid Cymru agree pact.

Details have been released of the 60 seats in which Liberal Democrats, Greens and Plaid Cymru will stand down candidates in a "Remain Alliance" to maximise the chances of electing anti-Brexit MPs in the 12 December general election.

Former cabinet minister Alun Cairns - who stood down as Welsh Secretary on Wednesday - is among the Tory MPs targeted in the pact, with Lib Dems and Plaid standing aside to allow the Greens to fly the Remain banner in his constituency.

But, despite calls for Mr Cairns' resignation over his links with a man blamed for a collapsed rape trial, his Vale of Glamorgan seat is a long-shot for the Remain Alliance, with the three Remain parties mustering only 8 per cent of the voe between them in the 2017 election, when Labour came a close second to the Tories.
