Over 130 parents at a Cardiff primary school queued since 3am to make sure their children have a space at a breakfast club next year.
Every year, Ysgol Y Berllan Deg in Cardiff, Wales, opens up applications for its before-school breakfast club, which has limited spaces.
The breakfast club is a government scheme aimed at providing primary school children with the opportunity of receiving a free, healthy breakfast at school each day.
For many parents with a long commute it is vital as it allows them to drop their kids off early and get to work on time.
The school opened its applications for the next school year today and some parents were so worried about missing out the queued through the night outside the school gates.
Front of the queue was Annett Farrow from Carmarthen, whose grandchild goes to the school.
For some parents like Leanne Taylor, who has been in her chair since 3.30am, there is no back-up plan.
Some parents are now veterans of the process, like Julie Ayre, who works in Somerset.
