Reception children in rural Cambridgeshire may be forced take taxis to schools up to 10 miles away due to "insufficient" space in village classrooms, it is feared.
Parents in Whittlesford are having to fight for their child to attend the local village school – where their older child already attends – after being allocated a place six miles away at Fowlmere Primary.
The anxious parents have told county councillor Peter Topping that such a decision would mean their 4-year-old would have to travel to school by taxi.
Meanwhile, according to Cllr Topping, another family from Ickleton has narrowly avoided having to send their child 10 miles by taxi to Linton Infant School.

At the conclusion to the season in April we are happy to report that the club finished runner up in the Cambridge Carpet Bowls League. We actually came out joint winners on points, but lost out from first place on the overall shots for the season. Truly a very creditable result for our village club.
We have had three new members this season who soon managed to play themselves in. We would welcome anyone who would like to give carpet bowls a try when we restart in the Millennium Room on Monday 7th September 2015.
Do pencil the date in your diaries, so you have something to look forward to when the long dark nights return !
