Disabled children in Coventry face cuts to bus services

Planned cuts by Coventry City Council could force disabled children who use special bus services to travel by public transport instead.

The council said although a final decision has not been made, £420,000 could be saved if children are given training in how to use ordinary buses.

The measure would be part of £15m cutbacks by the authority after the money it received from central government was cut by 37% over the past five years.

As BBC Midlands Today's Kevin Reide reports, parents have said they are "horrified" at the suggestions.
