The official turf cutting ceremony at a new school in Denbighshire has been held to mark the start of £25m building work.

The new Rhyl High School is expected to open in 2016 on the site of the school's playing fields.

Education Minister Huw Lewis said the investment was "fantastic for future generations of pupils, staff and the wider community".

Denbighshire council and the Welsh government are funding the development.

The on-site leisure centre will not be affected by the building work.
