Engineering centre to train Wylfa 'workforce of future'

The company behind an £8bn nuclear power plant will pay £1m towards an engineering centre on Anglesey.

Horizon Nuclear Power, the firm behind Wylfa Newydd, will pay towards Grwp Llandrillo Menai's Llangefni building.

The Welsh Government pledged £5m to the centre in 2015.

Grwp Llandrillo Menai chief executive, Glyn Jones, said he wanted to "ensure that as many local people as possible gain the world class skills required to work at Wylfa Newydd".

Horizon's chief of executive Duncan Hawthorne said it would help develop a "workforce for the future".
