North east Wales local radio stations go digital

Digital radio listeners in north east Wales will be able to pick up local stations for the first time as new transmitters are switched on.

Until now, only listeners in parts of south Wales have had access to Welsh stations like BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru via DAB digital radio.

These and other stations can now be heard by 375,000 people in north east Wales, says Digital Radio UK (DRUK).

The industry marketing group says 36% of homes in Wales have a DAB radio.

BBC Wales' Arts and Media Correspondent Huw Thomas reports.
