Government warning to improve children's services in Norfolk

The Government has warned it will take over running children's services in Norfolk unless there's a dramatic improvement within the next six months.

It follows yet another damning report from Ofsted, the third in six months. The watchdog is highly critical of the way the county looks after children and fails to support school improvements.

It all adds up to a tough baptism for the new interim head of the department, Sheila Lock, who has been drafted in as a troubleshooter.
