Cwmcarn High reopens after asbestos investigation

The reopening of a high school that shut after a report suggested that its 900 pupils were at risk from asbestos has come after "14 hard months", says its chair of governors.

Gary Thomas said Cwmcarn High School in Caerphilly county is "ready for business" after work to remove asbestos from the site.

Contractors began removing the asbestos in June, but the repairs were delayed after a worker died when it is believed he was electrocuted.

Mr Thomas spoke to Oliver Hides at BBC Radio Wales.
