Denbighshire school children give AM a grilling

Clwyd West Assembly Member Darren Millar came under the spotlight this week when he was grilled by a group of Denbighshire pupils.

Darren visited St Brigid’s in Denbigh on Monday to speak to Year 8 pupils about his role as an AM and to take questions.
