Concerned parents from a Glasgow primary school worried that their children face an hour-long walk through a graveyard and past a motorway are meeting with the director of education over the issue.

A group of mums whose children attend Wallacewell Primary School in Robroyston have been asking the city council to arrange a bus service to transport children attending Smithycroft Secondary School when term starts in August.

So far parents have been advised that children can use the number 8 bus which has been described as unreliable. Although one bus can get children there for 8.50am if it is late children don’t get to school until after 9am.
