A protest march is due to be held at Merthyr Town Centre later this morning. It's in opposition to the councils' plans to cut transport for sixth-form pupils at Ysgol Rhydywaun.

Merthyr council are yet to comment on today's protest but have previously told ITV Wales that they won't comment while the consultation process is ongoing.
