Firms apply to run local TV in Bangor, Mold and Swansea

A broadcasting watchdog has received bids from companies to operate local TV stations in north and south west Wales.

Ofcom has announced applications have been made for licences in Bangor in Gwynedd, Mold, Flintshire and Swansea.

There was just one applicant for the Bangor licence, but two bids each for Mold and Swansea.

The UK government has said there is demand for more local programmes than those offered by BBC or commercial TV.
