A decision to shut a village primary school could be reversed by Flintshire council.

It previously decided Ysgol Maes Edwin, Flint Mountain, should shut to help tackle surplus classroom places.

But the authority's education scrutiny committee has decided to ask the full council to rethink that decision after councillors "called in" the plans.

The committee agreed to push forward with the closure of Ysgol Llanfynydd, near Wrexham.

Ysgol Maes Edwin has about 70 pupils, while Ysgol Llanfynydd has 36 students.

The percentage of surplus places in Flintshire remains above the 10% target set by the Welsh Government.
