Seventy jobs are being created in Newport with the expansion of a specialist packaging company.

Essentra, which set up a plant on the city's Imperial Park in 2014, will more than double its staff to over 100.

The firm is being supported with £143,000 in grants and loans from the Welsh government.

Economy Minister Edwina Hart said she was delighted Newport had been chosen by Essentra to be "a centre of excellence within this global group".
