500 schools close due to snow in south east Wales

Nearly 500 schools have been closed due to fresh snow fall in south east Wales on Tuesday.

Areas seeing fresh snow include Cardiff, Newport, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil, Abergavenny, Pontypridd, Crickhowell, Aberdare and Chepstow.

Questions have been raised in Caerphilly as to why one school has been closed due to the weather while another next door remains opens.
