Pupils, teachers and parents due to protest against cuts

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.

Over 90 sixth form pupils travel from Merthyr to Ysgol Rhydywaun every day. But there are now plans out for consultation that could bring the service to an end.

Pupils are concerned about the negative impact that these cuts will have on the residents of Merthyr,

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.
