Campaigners say a deal's been reached with the owners of a former pub in Crickhowell High Street amid fears a supermarket could be built on the site.

The Corn Exchange will now be sold to nearly 180 local people. They say the sale's been approved by the board of Punch Taverns Ltd – and the campaigners now have eight weeks to exchange contracts.

After that, they will have six months to gain planning approval for their preferred use of flats above small shops.
