Construction and mining equipment manufacturer Caterpillar is to create 200 jobs in west Belfast.

The administrative posts will be at the company's plant at the Springvale industrial estate.

Caterpillar also owns the FG Wilson engineering group, which announced the loss of 760 jobs in Co Antrim last September.

Northern Ireland job-creation agency Invest NI has contributed £1.28m (€1.48m) towards the creation of the jobs.
