Three council-run libraries in Flintshire will shut this month when a new facility opens at Deeside Leisure Centre.

The closure of Hawarden, Mancot and Queensferry libraries was agreed last year, partly due to funding cuts.

The new library opens on 29 February and the others shut on different days.
