Parents call for Cwmcarn High School to reopen despite asbestos reports

Hundreds of parents and pupils are expected to call for the reopening of a school closed due to concern about asbestos.

Cwmcarn High School in Caerphilly county shut in October after a report said asbestos posed a threat to health.

But the Health and Safety Executive says the school is "essentially contamination free".

Caerphilly council says due to the conflicting reports it will wait for further studies before deciding whether to reopen the school.

Paul Heaney reports.
