Lifeline for Gwynedd's threatened tourism offices

Despite a £1bn local tourism industry, Gwynedd council has axed information offices in three of its most visited towns.

The closure of the Barmouth, Porthmadog and Caernarfon centres has been widely criticised.

There are hopes a combination of community action and business investment will see the centres reopen in 2017.

Gwynedd council and North Wales Tourism said they are "working on a solution".

The tourism offices closed in November - and six people lost their jobs - as part of Gwynedd council cuts to save £155,000.
