Parents in Essex who have been raising money for a school crossing patrol have been told it will cost them £55,000.

Tollesbury School, near Maldon, has never had a lollipop patrol. Essex County Council said it did not qualify for the funding.

The parents who are campaigning for one have been told the set-up cost is £46,842, with £8,432 a year on top of that.
