A mother has been told she cannot travel to school with her severely epileptic son because she has not been police checked.
Jayne Jones, of Aberfan near Merthyr Tydfil, used to travel with her son Alex, 14, in the council-provided taxi when she feared he may have a fit.
But Merthyr Tydfil council has told her this must stop until she has undergone a Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check.
The council said this was a standard requirement for escorting children.
