Sony is creating 30 new jobs at its factory in Bridgend county as the technology giant quadruples its production to cope with the expected demand of a next generation computer.

It is taking on the extra staff at its Pencoed site after unveiling the new budget-priced Raspberry Pi 2.

The production rate will rise from 18,000 units to 80,000 units per week.

There are currently 70 workers at the plant.
