Council chiefs are set to approve controversial plans to axe free transport for faith school pupils across Derbyshire.

Last October, Derbyshire County Council launched a consultation on proposals to scrap funding for transport to religious schools.

The plans look likely to be approved by councillors at a meeting next Tuesday – meaning pupils who currently attend a faith school would have to organise their own transport from July 2016, saving the authority £1m a year.
