Welsh transformation

Transforming a disused industrial site in North Wales into a sports leisure centre was the winning idea of final-year mining engineering student James Percy-Hughes in the White Rose Centre for Enterprise business plan competition. He beat students from York, Sheffield and others from Leeds to take the £15,000 first prize.

The precise details of the £3.5m development are  under wraps, as James seeks funding for his idea, helped by Leeds Innovations Ltd. The Welsh Tourist Board and Assembly have already expressed an interest.
