Leicester boy's dreams could be dashed because of council cuts

Ryan Dickin suffers from a muscle-wasting disease and uses a wheelchair. He's only 17 and has high hopes for the future. But he fears his dream of pursuing further education could be dashed due to council cuts.

Ryan relies on a Leicester City Council bus to take him to school but the local authority wants to save half a million pounds over two years on home-to-school transport.

That means from September, he and many others like him won't have access to a free council bus. Rajiv Popat reports.
