Three hundred temporary jobs are being created at a UK dry dock, following a £20m cruise liner refit.

Swansea Dry Dock beat off international competition to refit the 446-passenger Saga Pearl II.

A company spokesman said the contract will also enable the dock to compete for future business, the BBC reports.

Saga Shipping is part of the Saga Group, a UK company specialising in services, including holidays, for the over-50s.

The ship was bought at auction in Gibraltar earlier this year and is currently called the Astoria.
