Gladestry school's campaign song with writer Jim Eliot

Children at a Powys school threatened with closure have recorded a pop song with a leading songwriter as part of a campaign to keep it open.

Gladestry Primary School, near Hay-on-Wye, has teamed up with Jim Eliot, who lives locally and has worked with Kylie Minogue, Will Young and Olly Murs.

Parents claim the closure of the school would hit the community hard.

Powys council said it was consulting on reducing the number of primary schools in the area from six to three.
