A Devon schoolgirl who cut her hair off in memory of her sister has been told the new style does not conform to uniform policy.
12-year-old Katelyn Ball's sister, Keira, nine, died following a traffic collision in West Buckland last summer.
Katelyn had her long blonde hair cut short at the North Devon Show in August in aid of the Little Princess Trust and the InspiredbyKeira charity.
But when Katelyn returned to South Molton School this week, she was reportedly warned that her appearance was inappropriate.
Now parents Joe and Loanna Ball have temporarily pulled Katelyn and her sister, Keely, 13, from the South Molton school.
10-year-old Max Johnson was saved by a heart transplant from Keira - and Max travelled down to Devon last month to cut Katelyn's hair.
South Molton School have released a statement in response.
