A Caerphilly-based insurance broker is to create 89 new jobs in an expansion that will see its workforce doubled.

Moorhouse Group, trading as Constructaquote.com, is an online insurance quote comparison service and broker network business.

The new jobs will help develop an underwriting service and expand its van and commercial vehicle business.

It had considered outsourcing work to South Africa but the Welsh government gave £500,000 to secure the investment.

The business, founded in the town by Lyndon Wood in 1990 at the age of 19, currently employs 105 people and the new jobs will be added over the next two years.
