Controversial plans for an egg factory housing more than 17,000 chickens have again been refused by Wrexham council.

The proposed development at Talwrn Farm - rejected in July 2013 - was again thrown out, despite being recommended for approval.

Planners cited the impact on the landscape, access, noise and odour.

Susan Elan Jones, Clwyd South MP, welcomed the decision, saying the development would have had a "devastating effect" on the local area.
