A £400m Airbus factory which the company claims will secure 6,000 jobs in Flintshire is being officially opened.

Staff at the factory will build the lightweight carbon fibre wings for the new A350 passenger plane.

The company says it helps secure the future of the entire 7,000 acre site and the 6,000 people who work there.

BBC Wales business correspondent Nick Servini looks at what the announcement means for the workforce and for the wider economic community.
