Pupils who were due to start at a free school in Bradford next week should have their uniform costs refunded, says a local councillor.

Funding for the One in a Million free school was withdrawn by the Department for Education after concerns over pupil numbers and the venture's viability.

It meant around 30 pupils were left looking for other schools to attend.

Labour Councillor Ralph Berry, Bradford Council's executive member for children and young people's services, says he is writing to the Education Secretary to demand that parents are refunded the cost of their children's uniforms.
