Parents and pupils march to save school

Around 150 parents and pupils are expected to march through Beverley to protest against plans to close a local primary school. Dunswell Primary School is one of three East Riding schools earmarked for closure as part of a cost-cutting package by the local council.

East Riding Council says the children in the school catchment area can all be easily accommodated in Woodmansey School which is two miles away. But parents say Dunswell is a thriving community school which they want to keep. If the closure plans go ahead, it could shut its door for good next year.
