Plans to dispose of four Pembrokeshire primary school sites have been backed.

Hakin Infants, Hakin Junior, Hubberston and Stackpole schools have all been deemed "surplus to requirements" by the county council.

Pupils are due to leave the buildings in 2018 and will move to the new Gelliswick and Penrhyn schools, which serve the Milford Haven and Angle peninsula areas respectively.

Cabinet backed the recommendation to close the schools on Monday.

A report before members said the disposal of surplus council property will raise cash and that the sites are likely to be redeveloped into homes.
