Kent needs 10,000 primary school places

More than 10,000 primary school places need to be created in Kent in four years, the county council has revealed.

Conservative-run Kent County Council (KCC) said the demand was due to rising birth rates and migration.

Katie Smith, whose daughter Isabelle could not go to her three preferred choices of school, said local school places have not kept pace with an increase in population.
