Pilot training Anglesey move 'good news'

The move to bring basic pilot training for the RAF and Royal Navy to Anglesey has been warmly welcomed.

The Ascent consortium, who provide the training, is moving it from RAF Linton on Ouse in North Yorkshire to RAF Valley on Anglesey.

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) confirmed that basic flight training would take place at the island base.

Councillor Aled Morris Jones, Anglesey's economic portfolio holder, says it ensures the future of the RAF base there.
