A councillor in the Swansea Valley says she hopes the Gleision mine where four men died in 2011 never reopens.

Mine manager Malcolm Fyfield and its owners MNS Mining were cleared of manslaughter through gross negligence at Swansea Crown Court on Thursday.

Charles Breslin, David Powell, Philip Hill, and Garry Jenkins drowned in September 2011 when 650,000 gallons of water flooded the drift mine following a controlled explosion.

Councillor Rosalyn Davies spoke to Peter Johnson on BBC Radio Wales.
