Asbestos school annex to reopen

Part of a Swansea comprehensive school closed for a fortnight after asbestos was found by contractors is to reopen on Tuesday.
The material found in the annex of Penyrheol school at Gorseinon has now been made safe by specialists.

Swansea council has reassured pupils, parents and staff that the 16-classroom block is now completely safe to use.

Head teacher Alan Tootill said the asbestos had never posed a risk because the material had not been disturbed.

"The expert remedial works are now complete at the annexe building and I can reassure parents, pupils and staff that the annexe is totally safe to use," he added.

"This was an unfortunate situation but I'd like to thank parents and pupils for their patience and perseverance over the last week or so and staff for their hard work."
