Price comparison firm GoCompare is to be bought by insurance company Esure in a deal worth £95m.

GoCompare, which is based in Newport, will continue to be run from its headquarters. But founder and chief executive Hayley Parsons will step down as part of the deal, eight years after launching the company.

The £95m takeover figures means that GoCompare is valued at £190m.
