A protest has been held in Merthyr Tydfil to oppose cuts proposed by the local council.

One concern is a plan to withdraw transport provision for over-16s to travelling to school.

Campaigners say this would make it harder for pupils to travel to Ysgol Gyfun Rhydywaun in neighbouring Rhondda Cynon Taf, and threaten the future of the school.
