A Caerphilly school which closed over a year ago because of asbestos fears, will re-open today.

Work began to remove asbestos at Cwmcarn High School in June last year, after it was closed in October 2012.

Pupils were taught in Ebbw Vale whilst the work was being completed.

The school was due to re-open in September last year, but was delayed following the death of a contractor, who was working to remove asbestos.
