Proposals to create three sites in Essex to encourage companies in the medical technology sector into the county are announced.

The Anglia Ruskin MedTech Campus would see sites in Harlow, Chelmsford and Southend in a partnership between the university and local councils.

It is predicted they could create up to 12,500 jobs and add £1.2bn to the UK's medical technology sector.

It is hoped £500m of private funding will be sourced to pay for the project.
