'Welcome to Bala' prison name angers residents of town

A decision to name a wing at the UK's newest prison after a Gwynedd town has sparked anger among its residents.

HMP Berwyn opened in Wrexham at the end of February and will eventually hold 2,100 prisoners.

However, the move to call the first wing there Bala has left some in the town fuming and a petition has been started to change it.
