The Gwynedd council ward without any candidates

People living in one corner of Gwynedd can look forward to a very quiet local election campaign.

Most of the rest of Wales goes to the polls next month but when nominations closed for the Bryncrug/ Llanfihangel ward, no-one had put their name forward.

There'll have to be a by-election eventually to see if anyone wants to represent the area, after a long-serving independent councillor decided to step down.

Lorna Prichard has been to the area to find out what people living there think about it.

Controversy over plans for path through Caernarfon cemetery

A petition with 3000 signatures is being handed to Gwynedd Council today against proposals to put a path through Caernarfon’s cemetery.

It’s intended to get schoolchildren safely from a housing estate to Ysgol Y Hendre’s brand new site.

Currently, schoolchildren run across the busy Llanbeblig Road, but the path and a pelican crossing will put a stop to that, the school hopes.

Those protesting against the path say it will disturb the peace of the graveyard and is disrespectful to the dead.
