Leighton Andrews's Pentre school campaign support criticised

The education minister has been criticised for backing a campaign to save a school in his constituency which faces closure as a result of his own policy to tackle surplus places.

Leighton Andrews was photographed early this month holding a sign saying "Save Pentre Primary School".

The minister said he was standing up for his constituents as Rhondda AM.

Welsh Lib Dems leader Kirsty Williams told Oliver Hides on BBC Radio Wales that Mr Andrews was "not following through on his own policy".
