Plans for a new Welsh-medium school for three to 16-year-olds in Pembrokeshire have moved a step closer.

Pembrokeshire councillors agreed for the new school to be sited at Withybush Road, Haverfordwest, on Thursday.

As part of the process, councillors voted in favour of closing the town's Welsh-medium primary school, Ysgol Gymraeg Glan Cleddau.

A statutory notice will be published next week and residents will have an opportunity to object.

Post-16 Welsh education would be provided at Ysgol y Preseli in Crymych under the plans.
