Independent inquiry to be launched into Norfolk school inspection allegations

Ofsted is to appoint an independent figure to look into claims that three Norfolk schools were given advance notice of inspections.

Ofsted says the inquiry is being put in place in the light of new evidence in relation to the inspections of the three schools run by the Inspiration Trust led by Dame Rachel de Souza.

An earlier investigation which was published a month ago, found no evidence to substantiate the allegations that the three schools in question had been given the dates of their Ofsted inspections.

Suffolk man concerned over postcode lottery for IVF

A man from Felixstowe who has Cystic Fibrosis claims he and his partner are being denied the chance to have a baby because of a postcode lottery.

Matthew Shapland and his partner Berenice have been denied the right to IVF because Berenice has another child and they've been told they don't qualify for exceptional clinical funding.

But because Matthew can't work they say they can't afford to pay for IVF treatment privately.
