Wrexham Council seeks to boost affordable housing

Residents have just started moving into a block of affordable flats and houses designed to ease Wrexham's affordable housing shortage.

The authority has been criticised recently for having the lowest proportion of affordable housing in the whole of Wales - just one house per 10,000 residents.

But the council says it is disappointed with that figure, and is working to improve it.
