Council bosses defend plans to scrap some Auchmuty school buses

Parents of pupils at Auchmuty high school are concerned

Parents in Glenrothes are being encouraged to raise concerns with council bosses around plans to scrap certain school bus routes.

This means kids from areas like Markinch, Coaltown of Balgonie and Finglassie will need to walk - which is raising concerns around safety with parents.

Scottish Government legislation requires that children up to eight years old who live up to two miles away from school should walk.
