Skateboarders and inline skaters will take over 80 seats at county hall in Carmarthen on Saturday.

The move is to show their support for a new facility at Tumble Park which needs £500,000 of grant funding.

They have been invited into the chamber by council leader Emlyn Dole to raise awareness of the campaign.

The proposed park will be called "Riot" - in homage to the Rebecca Rioters who fought against rural poverty in Carmarthenshire in the 19th century.
