Welsh economy growing faster than most, ONS figures show

The Welsh economy is growing faster than most other parts of the UK, apart from the south east and north west of England, according to official figures.

But Wales remains bottom of the table in how much is produced per head of population, or Gross Value Added (GVA).

The figures show the Gwent valleys had most growth, 5.3%, while the economy contracted by 4% in south west Wales and 2.6% in Monmouthshire and Newport.

Anglesey had the lowest productivity in Wales.

Economics correspondent Sarah Dickens reports.
