A driver has been suspended after a 10-year-old with special needs was left on a school bus at a Wolverhampton City Council depot.

The boy, who should have been dropped off at Tettenhall Wood School, was found when the bus returned to base.

City councillor Phil Page, cabinet member for Schools, Skills and Learning, said an investigation was under way.

The youngster had not come to any harm, he added.

"As far as I am aware, the child was never left in the depot by themselves.

"He was not locked inside, but the matter is being investigated and we need to get the bottom of what exactly happened," said Mr Page.

He also said such an incident had never happened before.
