Commons debates school bus safety

Robyn Oldham and Alexander Milne
Pupils Robyn Oldham and Alexander Milne died last year

A bill calling for the law to be toughened on school bus safety is to be debated in the House of Commons.

Gordon Lib Dem MP Malcolm Bruce will lead the discussion on the issue.

He wants it to be illegal for vehicles to overtake a stationary school bus, and is also calling for flashing lights to indicate when the bus is stopping.

It follows the deaths of two pupils in Aberdeenshire last year. Alexander Milne, 12, and Robyn Oldham, 15, died after being struck by cars.
