A consultation on controversial plans to alter sixth form education in Pembrokeshire has been extended to Friday.

It had been due to end on Tuesday, but there was a technical problem with an online response form over the weekend.

The council wants to close three sixth forms and open a new centre in Haverfordwest, merge two schools and build a new Welsh-medium secondary.

Opposition councillors previously lost a vote to stop the plans.

Campaigners have held three protests against the proposals this year.

Save our Sixth Form, an action group opposed to the changes, have said they fear a lack of continuity could harm some students's prospects.
