Campaigners celebrate the reopening of Rhydyfelin Library

Campaigners say they are "thrilled to bits"

People living in Rhydyfelin near Pontypridd are celebrating the re-opening of their local library.

It was shut by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council last month in a bid to cut costs.

Last week the council made a surprise u-turn, and today the library was back in business.
