Hundreds of jobs are on their way to Wrexham following the announcement that Lend Lease will build a £212m super prison on the outskirts of the town.

Welsh Secretary David Jones said the project would be a "huge boost" for the local economy, creating opportunities for local companies and people, and worth about £23m annually.

Work is expected to start in August, creating up to 1,000 jobs, and the prison is due to open in late 2017.
