March against cuts in education

Around 300 parents and children have marched through Pontypridd in a protest over possible cuts to nursery care and early-years schooling.

Rhondda Cynon Taf council is thinking of cutting full-time free nursery for all three year olds, proposing children start their education later.

The council says it needs to save about £70m over the next four years and is currently consulting on its plans.

But opponents say it will increase poverty and hit education.
