Education bosses have been accused of putting money before pupils’ lives amid concerns a school is to be stripped of its crossing patrol service.

The lollipop man who worked on the four-lane dual carriageway outside Carrickfergus Model Primary School died unexpectedly two weeks ago.

Now parents have been informed by the school’s principal, Jenni Miller, that the Education Authority (EA) has indicated it is “very unlikely” that he will be replaced.
