Seven police stations in the Gwent force area are to reopen permanently, the Police and Crime Commissioner Ian Johnston has said.

The front counter service in Caerphilly, Chepstow, Maindee, Monmouth, Pontypool, Risca and Ystrad Mynach was closed or reduced in 2012.

They were initially reopened in 2014 and following a consultation, Mr Johnston says they will stay open.

"I'm delighted to announce that these stations will remain open," he said.

The stations will open on weekdays 09:00-17:00 GMT; in addition, Abertillery station will open on Thursday and Friday 09:00-17:00 and Brynmawr station will open Monday to Wednesday 09:00-17:00.
