Asbestos removal from Cwmcarn High School agreed

Around £1m is to be spent on a school which shut suddenly after a report said pupils were at risk from asbestos.

Caerphilly councillors have agreed the asbestos removal work and temporary classrooms at Cwmcarn High School.

A special meeting heard the move could see its 900 pupils return to the site for the new school year in September.

Students have been taught 12 miles (19km) away at Coleg Gwent's Ebbw Vale campus since the school shut in October 2012, prompting protests from parents.
