As Cwmcarn High School remains closed following a structural report last Friday which found signs of asbestos to be present in the school building one asbestos expert warns that there are likely to be many other schools affected.

Cenric Clement-Evans from 'New Law' Solicitors warns that Cwmcarn High School is unlikely to be a unique case.

Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader, Kirsty Williams has today called on the Welsh Government to hold a 'national audit' of every school in Wales to check for asbestos

The matter will be raised in the National Assembly this afternoon after Islwyn AM Gwyn Price was given leave to ask an urgent question.

900 pupils were sent home from Cwmcarn High School with immediate effect last Friday afternoon while an asbestos investigation is carried out.
