Villagers living in a remote part of Gwynedd have spoken of their disappointment that nobody has put themselves forward as candidates for the local elections in May.
Bryncrug's current councillor Arwel Pierce is standing down next month, and no one has put themselves forward as a potential replacement.
Many locals are upset their primary Ysgol Bryncrug is being closed, with the 37 pupils moving to a new school in Llanegryn costing £5.4million.
Beth Lawton, chair of the school governors, said news that nobody would stand up for local issues at a local authority level was "very disappointing". She had considered standing herself.
