AN ANGRY parent of a child denied a place at any of her nearest primary schools has launched a campaign for more city-centre school places.
Mary Croft, who lives in central St Albans, has named the campaign SABLE - St Albans Battle for Local Education.
She took the action after her daughter was denied a place at any city-centre school and allocated Mandeville instead.
After an appeal for support in the Herts Advertiser, Mrs Croft now has nearly 30 parents in the city centre with the same problem.

Around 130 children in the district were denied a school of their parent's choice when the primary school allocations came out last month - including 80 in central St Albans.
SABLE will be writing to Herts County Council insisting that they address the shortfall of city-centre primary school places and they want even more parents to join the campaign.
