A meeting will be held this afternoon (Friday) at 4.30pm to discuss the concern over lack of nursery places in the area.

It will be held in Craigavon Civic Centre and has been organised by MP David Simpson.

He said there had been a birth increase in the area but nursery provision did not vary with the increase.

A Department of Education spokesperson said it was aware of pressures in the Portadown area and will continue to work closely with the Education Authority to ensure every effort is made to find suitable places for children who have yet to be placed.
