Thirty new jobs have been created in Swansea by a Finnish computer software company.

Technology firm Leadin chose Wales for its new UK headquarters due to its links with Swansea University.

Leadin UK managing director Harri Mansikkamaki said: "Our collaboration with the university and government support contributed to our decision."

Economy Minister Edwina Hart said: "Swansea was seen as the optimum location for their growth plans."

She added: "This is a very welcome and significant investment in high-end technology in one of our key sectors."
