Cardiff Airport has seen a 9% increase in the number of its passengers since it was taken over by the Welsh government last year, it has been revealed.

Ministers bought the facility last March for £52m amid concerns about investment by its then Spanish owners.

Since May 2013, the business has seen 10 months of continuous growth.

By the end of March, managers hope to break the one million passenger mark for the financial year.

BBC Wales business correspondent Brian Meechan reports.
