Dozens of jobs are being lost at a Gwynedd nuclear power station which is being decommissioned.

Magnox, the owners of the Trawsfynydd station, said 90 jobs are to go.

The staff, who work for various contractors at the plant, will lose their jobs between now and the end of the year.

Around 180 workers are employed by Magnox on site, while the number of people employed by contractors will be cut from 220 to 130.
