Prime Minister Theresa May has signed off the Swansea Bay City Region deal, insisting she wants Wales “at the forefront of science and innovation”.

The plan is expected to create more than 9,000 jobs and trigger almost £1.3bn of investment in south-west Wales.

Mrs May said the deal would help show a country which “works for everyone”.

It comes as First Minister Carwyn Jones told the Guardian Mrs May had a “tin ear” on issues of devolution.
