Parent concerns over cuts in school transport funding

The BBC reports on the difficulties parents of disabled children are facing due to cuts in school transport funding in England. It highlights the case study of Will, an autistic boy who was expected to walk, get a bus and then a train to school, despite having sensory difficulties and little awareness of danger. The local government ombudsman report 2015-2016 has seen an increase in complaints about cuts to school transport funding.
