Jobs at the former Remploy factory in Porth have been saved after a new business has taken over the site.

E-Cycle Limited have received more than a hundred and twenty thousand pounds in support from the Welsh Government.

Over the last two years the UK Government has announced plans to close the seven Remploy factories in Wales, putting all employees out of work.

But the Welsh Government have set up the Employer Support Grant to offer financial support for employers looking to provide work to eligible disabled Remploy workers.
