One lane is closed on the M6 Northbound at Staffordshire due to an earlier accident. It is causing heavy traffic between J12 A5 (Gailey) and J13 A449 (Stafford South).
Hundreds of parents will be able to benefit this week as the new 30 hours’ free childcare scheme begins in Staffordshire.
The county council has 415 places of 30 hours’ free childcare for three and four-year-olds after the authority successfully bid earlier this year to host one of eight national trial schemes.
Thanks to our success in attracting the trial a year before it’s unveiled in the rest of the country, this initiative will make a real difference to hundreds of families.
It will help them find extra work, or if they already work full time it will put money in their pockets.”
More information about the scheme is available from www.staffordshire.gov.uk/30hour
