Parents are being asked for their views on a potential shortage of secondary school places in Swindon.

Swindon Borough Council says 150 extra school places will be needed in the next five years due to an increase in the area's population.

"It's essential that we have the best possible information on which to base our decisions," said David Renard, leader of the council.

"The views of parents whose children will be affected are clearly vital."

A public consultation into the issue has begun and will last until 22 November.
