Welsh education provision in Pembrokeshire is set to be discussed at an extraordinary meeting.

On Thursday, the council will vote on recommendations to shut Ysgol Gymraeg Glan Cleddau in Haverfordwest and open a school for three to 16-year-olds at Withybush Road.

Post-16 Welsh education would be provided at Ysgol y Preseli.

If approved, a statutory notice will be published on 26 April before a further report is brought to the council.
