More than 760 children have been refused places at their first choice primary school for September as Sheffield struggles to cope with a continuing baby boom.

Six city primaries have even been unable to find places for youngsters living in their catchment areas – Dobcroft Infant and Dore, Oughtibridge, Greystones, Hucklow and Netherthorpe primaries.

Other children have been turned away from schools where their brothers or sisters have places, giving parents major transport headaches.
