Collaboration 'way forward' for city regions

Wales will lose out if Cardiff does not become part of a bigger economic region to bid for UK government investment, researchers have claimed.

Chancellor George Osborne is expected to give extra help to Leeds and Sheffield in his Autumn Statement on Wednesday.

It follows support for Greater Manchester and Greater Glasgow.

Centre for Cities called on Cardiff to work more closely with its south Wales neighbours and with Bristol.

Dylan Jones-Evans, professor of entrepreneurship at University of the West of England, said collaboration was the way forward.
