Pinewood movie studio inquiry call by assembly member

Welsh Conservative culture spokeswoman Suzy Davies has called for a formal assembly inquiry into the Welsh Government's relationship with the Pinewood movie firm.

She called for clarity after it emerged that the group had stopped paying rent for a studio at a Welsh Government-owned building in Cardiff.

It entered a 15-year lease in January 2015, but BBC Wales has learned it is no longer considered to be a tenant at the Wentloog facility.

The Welsh Government said Pinewood remained committed to Wales and was operating the studio under a new agreement.

Ms Davies called for an inquiry saying "questions are leading to more questions".
