Brother in Wrexham produces 'last' typewriter in Britain


After a quarter of a century of production, a company in Wrexham says it is producing the last typewriter in Britain.

Manufacturer Brother, which says it has made 5.9 million typewriters since its factory in Wrexham opened in 1985, has donated the last machine to London's Science Museum.

The plant will now focus on recycling printer cartridges.

The BBC's Colin Paterson was there to witness the end of an era.
