A £5m project to build a crematorium in Flintshire will get under way in July, developers have said.

It follows three years of wrangling over the plans and a legal battle with a rival scheme.

The proposals for the facility in Northop were initially rejected by councillors, but approved following a planning inquiry.

It will now be sited on land between Kelsterton and Oakenholt Lanes in the village.

"We are currently finalising our remaining pre-commencement conditions with the hope of starting on site in July," said Jamieson Hodgson, from the Oxfordshire-based firm, Memoria.

"This means that we will aim to be open by mid-2018 so we can finally provide this much-needed public service facility to the people of Flintshire."
