FURIOUS parents were left outraged as their children were left stranded at the side of the road on the first day of school.

Pupils across the county were left unable to get to school after being turned away by drivers from Strafford’s Coaches if they could not provide a bus pass.

Parents say their children have not been required to show their passes in the past and were not told about any change to procedure ahead of the new school year.

Others say they have not received a pass.

Schools affected included Ysgol Morgan Llwyd in Caia Park and St Joseph’s High School, Wrexham.

Some drivers were handing notes explaining the situation to pupils.
