Cardiff Capital Region deal to make 'massive difference'

A £1.2bn Cardiff Capital Region deal has been signed to improve public transport and bring economic growth over the next 20 years.

It includes £734m for the south Wales Metro, bringing better rail and bus travel in the capital and valleys.

It also involves 10 local councils and aims to bring 25,000 new jobs and an extra £4bn in private sector investment.

Chief Secretary of the Treasury Greg Hands said it would make a "massive difference" while First Minister Carwyn Jones emphasised the importance of improving skill levels, which would come as part of the deal.
