Parents stage school sit-in


More than 20 parents have barricaded themselves inside Wyndford Primary and St Gregory's Primary in the Maryhill area of Glasgow.

Glasgow City Council has proposed closing or merging 13 primary schools and 12 nurseries across the city.

The protest at the two schools, which back on to each other, began at 1430 BST on Friday after parents attending a balloon launch in the school grounds locked themselves inside the assembly halls.
