AS concern grows over the prospect of pupils having to walk three miles to school instead of qualifying for a school bus for a two-mile distance, one parent has launched a petition against the change.

Julia Marrs lives in Kirkfieldbank and children from that village could soon find themselves walking up the brae to Lanark Grammar.

Julia also submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the police, which revealed that there had been 14 offences on Kirkfieldbank Brae alone in the last five years, many for road traffic offences.
