the community is pushed away so a bit fresher. And it will feel

Newport's chosen for a new contact centre which could create 300

:00:18.:00:20.

At a ceremony in Kyoto, Wales are drawn against Australia

:00:21.:00:26.

and Georgia in the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

:00:27.:00:29.

And high above Aberystwyth, archaeologists discover a burial

:00:30.:00:33.

mound that could date back 3,000 years.

:00:34.:00:37.

South Wales has been chosen as the location of a new contact

:00:38.:00:45.

centre where around 300 jobs could be created over

:00:46.:00:47.

Carpeo's new base in Newport will offer services including

:00:48.:00:54.

arranging affordable wills and funerals.

:00:55.:01:00.

Here's our business correspondent, Brian Meechan.

:01:01.:01:09.

Carpeo is the latest addition to the thriving Welsh

:01:10.:01:12.

It will create 60 jobs this year with further growth planned.

:01:13.:01:16.

Starting salaries will be ?22,000 a year, slightly lower

:01:17.:01:19.

than the Welsh average but higher than many others in the industry.

:01:20.:01:21.

These projects will require a level of empathy and voice

:01:22.:01:24.

Wales is recognised as having that skill set.

:01:25.:01:33.

Secondly, really, we were looking for an area where we were getting

:01:34.:01:36.

The company decided to come to Newport rather than Teesside,

:01:37.:01:43.

in part due to a ?500,000 grant from the Labour-run

:01:44.:01:46.

Ministers say it will create a range of jobs linked

:01:47.:01:51.

The contact centre industry in Wales has been on the up.

:01:52.:01:55.

It employed 10,000 people in 1999, which has now

:01:56.:01:57.

It is estimated to be worth over ?650 million

:01:58.:02:05.

It is estimated to be worth over ?650 million

:02:06.:02:08.

But work like this faces a challenge from technology,

:02:09.:02:13.

with automation expected to mean fewer employees will be

:02:14.:02:16.

Industry representatives say they're not concerned.

:02:17.:02:21.

Robotics may see the end of the lower paid non-transactional

:02:22.:02:28.

job role, but because the advisers are then dealing with more complex

:02:29.:02:31.

calls, the time will be longer, so they will need

:02:32.:02:33.

Opposition politicians are welcoming the new jobs,

:02:34.:02:39.

but Plaid Cymru says other parts of Wales aren't benefiting from

:02:40.:02:44.

The Conservatives argue it shows the strength

:02:45.:02:50.

A woman has died in hospital days after a crash

:02:51.:02:55.

in Rhondda Cynon Taf, - in which her son was also killed.

:02:56.:02:58.

63-year-old Irene Martin and her son Mark Golubovic were involved

:02:59.:03:01.

in a collision with a lorry near Llanharry on Saturday.

:03:02.:03:03.

A village where 140,000 litres of oil leaked into a river killing

:03:04.:03:10.

a large number of fish has been given 40,000 by the pipe owners.

a large number of fish has been given ?40,000 by the pipe owners.

:03:20.:03:22.

Kerosene spilled from the Valero-owned pipeline

:03:23.:03:24.

into Nant Pibwr, near Nantycaws, in October last year.

:03:25.:03:27.

Calls are being made for more research into a mysterious disease

:03:28.:03:31.

which is killing dogs, including five in Monmouthshire.

:03:32.:03:33.

So-called Alabama Rot causes ulcers and lesions

:03:34.:03:37.

on the paws and legs of dogs, before causing fatal kidney failure.

:03:38.:03:40.

Experts don't know exactly how it's contracted,

:03:41.:03:42.

or how to prevent it, with a conference being held

:03:43.:03:46.

today to discuss ways to tackle the problem.

:03:47.:03:51.

There are many more causes of lesions on the feet and lower

:03:52.:03:56.

legs and on the tummy and the face, so I think, if it's something that

:03:57.:03:59.

you can't understand where it's come from or can't explain where it's

:04:00.:04:04.

come from and your dog is showing systemic signs of sickness,

:04:05.:04:07.

then it's definitely worth getting checked out.

:04:08.:04:11.

Wales now know who they'll face in the 2019 Rugby World Cup

:04:12.:04:21.

and coach Warren Gatland says he's pretty happy with the draw.

:04:22.:04:23.

His side has avoided the toughest pool for the tournament,

:04:24.:04:26.

Kyoto this morning and the Japanese Prime Minister welcomed the rugby

:04:27.:04:41.

world to Japan. But the first rugby World Cup in Japan 2019, a shining

:04:42.:04:46.

example of new beginnings, ambitions and opportunities. From the all

:04:47.:04:50.

Blacks South Africa, every was represented. Warren Gatland's team

:04:51.:04:57.

was handed a kinder to the last time round but just like in 2015, the

:04:58.:05:01.

impaired with Australia that also face Georgia. Then it's likely to be

:05:02.:05:07.

feature awesome, and a qualifier from America, probably Canada or the

:05:08.:05:10.

USA. We'll know for sure by the end of next year. Last November, and

:05:11.:05:16.

Wales suffered the 12th successive defeat against Australia. They also

:05:17.:05:19.

lost against the Wallabies of the last World Cup. Both sides will face

:05:20.:05:24.

each other this autumn, Georgia will also visit the principality stayed

:05:25.:05:30.

in November. That game now takes on greater significance. After the

:05:31.:05:31.

photocalls, coach Warren Gatland said it's a tough

:05:32.:05:48.

competitive draw but he's happy how it's turned out. It's a proud moment

:05:49.:05:51.

for hosts Japan. As for Wales, there's plenty of time to prepare.

:05:52.:05:54.

The World Cup doesn't kick off for another two years.

:05:55.:05:57.

Newport Gwent Dragons Chief Executive, Stuart Davies,

:05:58.:05:58.

says the decision to allow a takeover deal has secured

:05:59.:06:01.

the future of professional rugby in Newport, and work will start

:06:02.:06:03.

immediately on installing a new pitch.

:06:04.:06:05.

Last night, shareholders of Newport RFC voted to allow

:06:06.:06:07.

the Welsh Rugby Union to assume full control of the region,

:06:08.:06:10.

There's work to be done in terms of the transition for Newport RFC,

:06:11.:06:14.

in terms of the current arrangements, and how we make sure

:06:15.:06:17.

that is us with as possible and of course a lot of planning

:06:18.:06:20.

will start on the Dragons side in respect of what's

:06:21.:06:22.

We've got to move quickly on that well.

:06:23.:06:28.

Archaeologists in Aberystwyth say they've made a "nationally

:06:29.:06:30.

significant" discovery on an Iron age hill fort in Ceredigion.

:06:31.:06:32.

A geophysical survey has revealed new finds at Pen Dinas,

:06:33.:06:36.

including a suspected Bronze Age burial mound, thought

:06:37.:06:38.

Matt Murray has been to take a look.

:06:39.:06:50.

It looks like an unassuming grassy mound but this is thought to be an

:06:51.:06:58.

ancient Bronze Age burial site. Archaeologists say it's pushed their

:06:59.:07:02.

understanding of Pen Dinas near Aberystwyth back 1000 years. And

:07:03.:07:07.

it's hugely significant. Before the Iron Age fort, there was someone

:07:08.:07:10.

here. There was maybe a local chieftain that was buried there in a

:07:11.:07:15.

prominent location, so this whole monument, was meant to be seen from

:07:16.:07:20.

the ground the landscape. Pen Dinas has always been considered when of

:07:21.:07:25.

the most largest and significant fortresses in Wales. It

:07:26.:07:42.

consists of two separate forts, but the only archaeological excavations

:07:43.:07:45.

were in the 1930s, led by Professor Daryl Ford. But this geophysical

:07:46.:07:47.

survey which provides images from beneath the ground without needing

:07:48.:07:50.

to date shows the soil hasn't been disturbed year for over 3000 years.

:07:51.:07:52.

The survey was part of a community led Heritage and an environment

:07:53.:07:55.

project. Just to find that somebody, whether it's achieved for a king or

:07:56.:07:57.

a queen, some amazingly important person, is buried here, has just

:07:58.:08:02.

blown some of the community away. The next plan is for a full-scale

:08:03.:08:06.

archaeological survey for a site still surrounded by the views which

:08:07.:08:10.

made it a prime location for an important Bronze Age burial.

:08:11.:08:12.

Sue's here and it's another beautiful day?

:08:13.:08:18.

This afternoon, dry and bright with plenty of sunshine and just

:08:19.:08:22.

Turning warmer again with light winds, top

:08:23.:08:32.

Some late evening sunshine, skies remains clear tonight,

:08:33.:08:38.

light winds, turning chilly, overnight lows of 5-10C

:08:39.:08:42.

for towns and cities, colder in the countryside.

:08:43.:08:44.

The high pressure starts to break down tomorrow,

:08:45.:08:48.

troughs moving up from the south, bringing bands of showery rain.

:08:49.:08:52.

Chilly enough for patchy frost in sheltered rural spots

:08:53.:08:55.

in north and mid Wales, brightest here too for longest,

:08:56.:08:58.

but as those fronts edge closer, cloud will thicken, showers pushing

:08:59.:09:01.

in from the south, hit and miss, but less settled in the south

:09:02.:09:05.

tomorrow, brighter in the north, and with warm southerly winds,

:09:06.:09:08.

it will feel milder, 16C in Powys, 19 in Gwynedd.

:09:09.:09:14.

That trough continues to moves northwards tomorrow

:09:15.:09:17.

Tomorrow night, drier in the north for a time,

:09:18.:09:21.

but those showers continue to push up from the south, turning

:09:22.:09:24.

cloudier everywhere, so milder overnight at 9-12C.

:09:25.:09:28.

Then Friday's more unsettled, more in the way of showers,

:09:29.:09:33.

heavy in places, with a risk of thunder, moving northwards,

:09:34.:09:36.

maybe turning a bit drier in the south later, and feeling

:09:37.:09:38.

quite humid, unstable air, temps in mid to high teens.

:09:39.:09:47.

Sunshine and showers for the weekend.

:09:48.:09:50.

Those are the latest headlines in Wales.

:09:51.:09:51.

Lucy's back with a full round up at 6.30pm.

:09:52.:09:53.

But for now, from everyone on the lunchtime team,
