In a speech today, Northern Ireland Secretary Theresa Villiers is expected to call for a focus on paramilitaries rather than the police as part of future measures to heal divisions over the conflict. She is expected to say:
At least with a new process, agreed by Northern Ireland's political leaders, there is scope to write in from the start the need for an objective balance and with proper weight and a proportionate focus on the wrongdoing of paramilitaries...rather than the almost exclusive concentration on the activities of the state which characterises so many of the processes currently under way.

Parents planning their child's primary school place before the have even conceived is "a sign of the times", a parenting expert has said.
Netmums founder Siobhan Freegard said their survey into measures taken by parents to get their child into their ideal school showed how "tough" competition for places had become:

Competition for what parents perceive to be the best schools is now so tough they will do almost anything to gain their child a place.
Some ways like moving house to be close to the school can cost tens of thousands of pounds, while others such as applying for a nursery place at the school in a bid to boost their chances are bending the rules - but determined mums and dads will do what it takes.
It's a real sign of the times that people now begin thinking about which school to send their child to before they are even pregnant.
