Living with tinnitus

Tinnitus permanently affects six million people in the UK and almost half of us experience a form of it at some point in our lives.

For those that have to live with the condition, the ringing or buzzing sound in their ears or head can have a debilitating impact on their day-to-day lives.

We're joined by Tre Lowe who suffers with severe tinnitus to tell us more about living with the condition.

Nursery facing closure over photos to reassure parents

A nursery school in Kent is facing closure after it was sending photos of children to their worried parents to show that they are happy after they leave.

Cindy Fox, owner of Cherubs nursery in Linton, says she simply wanted to reassure concerned parents but she has been told by education watchdog Ofsted that the pictures jeopardise the safety of children - and as a result the school has been stripped of its outstanding rating and branded inadequate instead.

Parent, Chantelle Bourne, has started a petition on, urging Ofsted to alter the 'Inadequate' rating. By Sunday afternoon, it had nearly 900 signatures.

We'd love to know what you think too. Does your child's nursery send you photos of your child? Do you think it's OK or agree with Ofsted that the use of mobile phone in nurseries is unsafe?
