Audlem students stranded
Angry parents say sixth form students in Audlem have been left "stranded" and unable to get to school in Nantwich after public transport was pulled by Cheshire East Council.
It's feared up to 30 students could be affected by Cheshire East's decision not to provide school transport for Brine Leas year 12 and 13 students.
And to compound the problem, the authority also allowed D&G Buses to pull its public 73 and 61 services, which Brine Leas students were able to use previously with a purchased bus pass.
It means students are either not attending school or having to "car share" with other families, against Covid-19 guidelines.
One furious mum said they were only told of the change a day before schools went back.
And she believes Cheshire East is breaching its statutory duty to provide where possible assistance for post-16 pupils to get to school from outlying rural areas.
