'Protect Welsh language in school merger plans, says AM

Campaigners have won their fight to stop the merger of two schools over language concerns in Denbighshire.

Ysgol Pentrecelyn and Ysgol Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd, both in Ruthin, were to shut and be replaced by one school educating pupils in English or Welsh.

But backers of Ysgol Pentrecelyn complained the council did not consult properly.

Judges agreed and ruled the council's decision was unlawful on procedural grounds.

North Wales Plaid Cymru AM Llyr Gruffydd said the council must now look again at its plans.
