New £400m Airbus plant 'secures 6,000 jobs' in Flintshire


A new £400m plant making carbon-fibre wings for Airbus' new A350 airliner will secure 6,000 jobs in Flintshire, the company says.

About 650 workers will be based at the North Factory, Broughton, where carbon-fibre wings for the new A350 airliner will be made.

Airbus says it means job security for all staff at Broughton, the UK's largest single manufacturing site.

The BBC's Sian Lloyd was at the opening of the factory.
