Welsh Rugby Union chief executive Roger Lewis has been appointed chairman of the new south east Wales "city region" group set up to boost investment.

Economy minister Edwina Hart also confirmed Swansea council leader councillor David Phillips as the chairman of Swansea Bay City Region.

Other appointments include public and private sector specialists as well as company bosses and academics.

Mr Lewis told BBC Wales he will be carrying out the role unpaid and in spare time from his WRU duties.

He said it would bring together the interests from 10 local council areas, as well as business and higher education.
