Editorial Comment.

Five months ago a severe fire tore through Coedpenmaen Primary School, in Pontypridd, burning it to the ground.

It prompted the region's top fireman to speak out about the importance of installing sprinklers in the replacement building, ensuring that damage is minimised should another fire break out.

But it now appears councillors have ignored him. The cabinet at Rhondda Cynon Taf council has finally agreed plans to replace the school - without the potentially lifesaving sprinklers.

Are they completely lacking any common sense? It's not a case of bolting the stable door after the horse has bolted - it's leaving the door open for the horse to run amok again and again.
