A new owner could be found to take over a community cinema and arts centre in Denbighshire which shut earlier this month due to cash problems.

The trust running the Scala in Prestatyn has agreed to hand back the keys and lease to Denbighshire council, said the authority.

The council said several expressions of interest have already been received.

The Scala was given a £3.5m facelift when it reopened in 2009 after closing in 2000.
