'She was a true pioneer' Wales' first black headteacher dies at the age of 82

Tributes have been paid to Wales' first black headteacher, who has died at the age of 82.

Betty Campbell, made history when she was appointed head of Mount Stuart Primary School in Cardiff in the 1970s.

She has been described as a 'true pioneer' and 'inspiration to other black and ethnic minority people'.

Among those paying tributes was the First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones:

Betty was a popular figure in the Butetown area Cardiff. MP Stephen Doughty described her as a 'servant' of her community.

Speaking to the National Assembly of Wales before her death, Mrs Campbell said she was 'determined' to become an inspiration for others and enhance 'black culture.'
