500 parents and pupils match through Cwmcarn

More than five hundred pupils and their parents have marched through Cwmcarn today in an attempt to persuade the local council to reopen their school.

Cwmcarn High School was closed last October after an investigation supposedly found dangerous levels of asbestos.

But two subsequent reports have argued that the building is "essentially uncontaminated", so parents now say they want their children back at the site. With more, here's our Valleys reporter Hannah Thomas.
