Flintshire County Council will have officers travelling on the 10s 10A and 12 services from Monday as they monitor the situation.

Arriva bus drivers have been told they must allow pupils from Connah’s Quay High School to travel on all of their services,

Any decision will be made by Arriva into future provision for school pupils once the investigation is complete.

A police spokesperson told Deeside.com:
