Council leaders in Wales have called for extra support after Airbus cut more than 1,700 jobs across their UK operations.

The Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) have urged the UK and Welsh governments to work together to help communities affected by heavy job losses at the firm's biggest plant in Flintshire.

Cllr Ian Roberts, leader of Flintshire County Council, said: 'The shockwaves that will be felt in the local economy simply cannot be overstated, for both current workers and for many young people who had hoped to embark on their careers at the plant locally.

'I am grateful that all my fellow council leaders in Wales are joining me in calling for an urgent two-government solution to help support these workers and the aviation industry in Flintshire. This is desperately needed to help save people’s jobs, livelihoods, and the prosperity of the whole region.'
