A £100m seven-year project to build 800 homes in Cardiff has begun.

The Tirion Group development at the 53 acre (21 hectares) former Arjo Wiggins paper mill site in Ely, is expected to create about 1,000 jobs during construction.

It includes affordable and open-market houses, a village centre, footpaths and cycle ways.

Civil engineering works will take 16 months.
