Closure of Powys secondary school 'a great loss'

About 600 pupils, parents and teachers have gathered to hand in a petition against plans to reorganise secondary school education in Powys.

Powys council's cabinet wants to replace two schools in Brecon with a new-build English medium secondary, and close Llandrindod Wells High School.

The council said three schools were in special measures and it had to "take action for the sake of our learners".

The cabinet has voted for a full consultation to be carried out.
