'There were multiples copies circulated'

There will be copies of it within government departments. That all have been destroyed - that's not just credible.

– Labour MP John Mann

David Cameron will appear at PMQs today, two days after he vowed there would be 'no stone unturned' in the row over the Home Office's handling of historical sex abuse allegations.

Labour MP John Mann tells us that he believes the allegations of child abuse at Westminster were known by many Home Office officials.

A dossier containing those allegations is among 114 that have gone missing.

Are the unions ruining your week?

Members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) are due to join council and health workers, fire-fighters and civil servants as part of the one-day stoppage tomorrow

More than a million people are expected to take part in what is billed as the biggest single walkout over pay since the coalition came to power.

The move threatens to close or partially shut almost every state school - causing parents to find emergency childcare or take the day off work to look after children.

Good Morning Summer: Child Safety

According to GMB research almost half of parents revealed they've 'lost' a child and were unable to find them at some point during their holiday.

It may have been for a matter of seconds or minutes but it's a terrifying moment to look round and find your child is out of sight.

Although cases like Madeline McCann and Ben Needham are rare 140,000 children go missing in the UK every year and, thankfully, most are found within a couple of hours. 1% of all missing children in the UK are still not found after a year - so what can parents do?

Ranvir and Dr Hilary will be speaking to parents on holiday in Benidorm to see what they do to keep their little ones safe and we've got top tips as to what you can do to feel more secure about your child's security.

One quarter of Brits go on summer holiday every year, with Benidorm attracting four million tourists annually.


Parents should remember the 'ABC' when it comes to child safety:

A. Arrange a meeting point - works well for visiting museums, theme parks, water parks etc

B. Be vigilant - even though you're on holiday keep an eye at all time what you kids are doing

C. Contact - Make sure your kids know how to get in touch with you. Write your mobile on their arm or clothing.

If you're holidaying in the UK or having a staycation then all adults should register with the Child Rescue Alert system which April Jones' parents and The McCanns support. If a child goes missing an alert will go out to you if your postcode matches the area where a child has been reported missing. Within the message there is a contact number to call if you have seen something or have information. The more people registered then the more 'eyes' are out there and more people that can help.
