A global security company is creating 100 jobs in Gloucestershire by opening a new Cyber Centre facility.

Northrop Grumman said its cyber workforce would help customers across the UK and Europe counter "the most complex cyber threats".

In January, the firm was given a contract by the government to help improve cyber security nationally.

A spokesman said the new facility would "significantly enhance" the expertise it could offer to the UK.

Andrew Tyler, chief executive of Northrop Grumman Europe, added: "It will enable industry, customers, partners and academia to collaborate in one location, to help solve some of the challenges of today's complex threat environment."
