A man begins his life sentence for the murder of Glynis Solmaz
There are mixed feelings towards proposals for the large, gas-fired power station on Wrexham Industrial Estate.
Mark Hughes has been appointed the new manager of Stoke City FC, replacing Tony Pulis.
Crews from North Wales Fire and Rescue Service are attending a blaze at an industrial site in north Wales. Firefighters were called after smoke was spotted coming from a unit on the Vauxhall Industrial estate near Ruabon in Wrexham.
Four appliances are on scene and around 14 firefighters present. There are no reported injuries.
A Wrexham man has been jailed for seven-and-a-half years after a court heard he threatened to burn down his former partner's home.
Barry Ian Turnbull, 45, had earlier sent her a sympathy card with a photograph of the five Philpott children, who were killed in a Derby house fire last year.
Days later he set fire to a bin outside her home, which damaged windows and plastic pipes while the family were asleep in their beds.
Turnbull admitted arson with recklessness as to whether life would be endangered; putting his ex-partner in fear that violence would be used against her; and threatening to destroy property.
He was cleared of a more serious charge of arson with intent to endanger life.
Judge Rhys Rowlands, sitting at Mold Crown Court, described sending the sympathy card - on which Turnbull wrote 'RIP' - as 'beneath contempt'.
He said: “All right-thinking people would view that as nothing short of wicked."
On starting the fire, the judge told Turnbull: “You showed no concern at all for those inside the house. You left, no doubt feeling very pleased with yourself at the time.”
Over the next few weeks, thousands of motorists across Wales are likely to be stopped in spot-checks as police crack down on drink-driving.

Mark Bellis is the Director of Policy Research and Development for Public Health Wales. As police across the country prepare to crack down on drink-driving this Christmas, he urges people: "Moderate your alcohol intake - and remember your Christmas for good reasons, not bad ones."
Relatives of 21-year-old Kieran Lea Arnold, who was killed by a drink-driver in June, have worked with North Wales Police to produce this campaign video ahead of Christmas.
Deputy Chief Constable Gareth Pritchard said: “To lose a child must be one of the hardest things a parent can face and I would like to thank Kieran’s family for assisting us with this year’s campaign.
"Please don’t drink and drive. Think about the consequences. You could face losing your licence and your job, face imprisonment and, much worse, have to live with the guilt of taking a life for the rest of yours. Don’t take the risk.”
The mother of 21-year-old Kieran Lea Arnold, who was killed by a drink-driver in June, has spoken of her family's loss in a short film created by North Wales police.
In the video, Donna Lea says: "Drink-driving ruins people’s lives. It is total devastation for our family, who now have been given a life sentence of living without our son, brother and grandson."
North Wales Police has launched its campaign to tackle the increased amount of drink-drivers at Christmas time.
Thousands of motorists face being stopped over the next few weeks as teams from all four Welsh forces conduct roadside checks across the country.

The North Wales campaign is being supported by the family of Kieran Lea Arnold, from Cymau, near Wrexham, who was killed by a drunk driver in June this year.
Kieran's family have spoken of the pain of losing their 'popular, gentle giant' to a drunk driver, and have helped put together a short film on the effects of getting behind the wheel when over the limit.
Wrexham claimed a 2-0 at home to Forest Green, which meant a record sixth consecutive home win for the Conference side.

The family of a woman who was murdered during a burglary at her home in Wrexham have described her death as "unbearable".
Glynis Solmaz was choked to death in her bedroom on the Caia Park Estate in February.
Alexandros Wetherill was earlier given a life sentence for her murder.
Three other men were also jailed after they pleaded guilty to conspiring to burgle Ms Solmaz's home.
