Main Port Engineering, which is based in Pembroke Dock, opened a brand new facility on the Milford Haven Waterway Enterprise Zone in March.

The move, they said, would "secure the firm’s long term future and enable the company to maximise the latest engineering technology, take on large long term contracts and create new skilled jobs."

ITV Wales has tried to contact the company for comment.

It's thought the company has over 150 employees.

A 3 month old kitten has been rescued after becoming trapped in barbed wire, 50 feet up a wall at Pembroke Castle.

Nicknamed Henry - after Pembroke castle most famous former resident, King Henry VII - the kitten was rescued by RSPCA Cymru and Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service.

Henry is now safe and sound in RSPCA care - with all 9 lives intact!

It really was a horrible ordeal for the kitten.

It was just by chance someone saw the kitten struggling on the wall. The poor little thing was so frightened. We don’t know how he got there.

The fire service were absolutely brilliant. They had a safety line and went over the wall down about eight foot and rescued the kitten.

I took him straight to the vets where he was given antibiotics and pain relief and he is very sore and bruised and he has torn a bit of his skin on his thigh which should heal. But he is doing really well and is now recovering from his ordeal in our care.

He's eaten well overnight which is good as he's actually a little skinny under all that fur!

Plans have been unveiled to restore Black Pool Mill near Narberth. The 19th Century building is Grade 2* listed and was fully operational until the Second World War but has survived with a full set of machinery.

Bluestone resort wants to restore it to its Victorian prime. The flour mill sits within a Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC).

A public consultation gets underway today.

In consultation with some of the UK’s leading heritage, ecology and biodiversity experts, we have designed an ambitious restoration programme for the mill and its surrounding landscape, to preserve, manage and improve the site in its entirety.

Historic integrity runs through the very core of this project and we are proposing a thoughtful and sympathetic approach, enabling the architectural features of the past to shine through and offering visitors a rare opportunity to take a step into history.
