Parents are due to stage a protest this afternoon against plans to relocate their children's school.

Essex County Council says there are too few children in the catchment area of Farnham Primary's current site at Bishop's Stortford while nearby Stansted is experiencing an increase in demand for places.

It hopes to move the school to St John's Road in the nearby village.

Parents opposed to the proposal plan to hold a demonstration at the end of the school day.
