Powys Council members have voted to go ahead with a full consultation on plans to replace two secondary schools in the area.

The proposals will see two secondary schools - Builth Wells High School and Llandrindod High Schools replaced with a new English-medium school on one of the existing sites.

If the plans go ahead, Llandrindod High School will close.

Around 600 pupils, parents and staff turned out at the local council offices this morning to protest against the potential merger.
