Head teachers across the East are continuing their fight to have this year's GCSE English marks regraded.

As the Education Select Committee investigates complaints that results were lower than expected, one head from Northamptonshire told MPs thousands of students had suffered a great injustice.

But the exam regulator Ofqual says it acted properly and is refusing to order the exams to be regraded.

The row has left many students distressed and facing the dilemma of whether to re-sit their GCSE English or wait and see if it's eventually regraded.
