Almost £7m profit has been made by the Welsh Government from properties bought and sold since 2007, new figures show.

Details obtained via a Freedom of Information request showed it made more than £5.7m in profit in just two years on Number 1 Capital Quarter, Cardiff, which was sold in January.

While a total of £2.4m was lost on 12 properties, six property sales raised £9.3m in profit.
