Cardiff Airport passenger numbers rise by more than 9%

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

Ministers bought the facility in March 2013 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.

Business correspondent Brian Meechan reports for BBC Wales Today and speaks to presenter Jamie Owen.
