Reverend Canon Frances Jackson, 57, from the Diocese of Southwark in South London, was named as the new Archdeacon of Llandaff on Tuesday by the Archbishop of Wales and Bishop of Llandaff, Barry Morgan.

Reverend Canon Jackson, who was ordained a deacon in 1987, will also become the Priest in charge of the deanery of Penarth and Barry.
