A Carmarthenshire primary school is undergoing a £4m refurbishment.

Work started on Ysgol Pontyberem last month and, when it is complete in December 2018, it will have 270 school places.

It includes new floors, ceilings, electrical equipment and a lift platform for wheelchair users.

There will also be specialist rooms for additional-learning needs, design, technology and art, as well as new toilets.

The project has been jointly funded by Carmarthenshire council and the Welsh Government.
