Council meeting halted by Cardiff riding school protest

Supporters of a riding school have protested outside a Cardiff council meeting after it was revealed that it could close.

The council halted its full meeting for 15 minutes to meet the protesters.

Thirty workers were apparently told on Wednesday that the 30-acre site in Pontcanna Fields would shut by 1 April.

Cardiff council declined to comment on the future of the school ahead of the meeting of the full council on Thursday.
