A school in Caerphilly will remain closed for the week over asbestos concerns.

It's after the results of a structural report which were received on Friday afternoon.

Caerphilly Council has confirmed Cwmcarn High School will remain closed until further notice while further investigation takes place.

The council is currently working with the Public Health service to analyse the report's findings, but the Council says alternative arrangements for pupils are unlikely to be made this week.

The authority says the safety of pupils and staff is of paramount importance.
