Cairns: Investment figures 'excellent news' for Wales

Figures on inward investment showing more than 5,000 jobs were created in Wales are "excellent news", Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns has said.

A Department for International Trade report revealed 5,443 new posts were created in the year to April 2016 - a 7% increase on the previous year.

Mr Cairns said this showed Wales was in a "positive position" to exploit "opportunities across the UK and beyond".
