A £15m telephone company headquarters, claiming to be the "happiest workplace in the UK", has opened in Wrexham.

The 91,000-sq ft Moneypenny development at Western Gateway includes a treehouse meeting room, its own village pub and a sun terrace.

Outside there are nature trails, a duck pond and orchards.

The telephone answering service plans to create 500 new jobs over the next few years and hopes to double its client base by 2018.

Co-founder and director Ed Reeves said: "What we believe is simple: the happier our staff, the happier our clients.

"We provided our architects with the same budget we'd been quoted to build a standard office and said 'right, show us how we can create something amazing'.

"It was a challenge, but we ripped up the rulebook and that's exactly what they did."
