Thousands of teenagers across the region have been finding out their GCSE grades today.

The proportion of GCSE exam students awarded at least a C grade has risen for the first time in three years, official figures show.

Just over 68.8% of exam entries scored A*-C (up 0.7 percentage points on last summer) according to statistics published by the Joint Council for Qualifications.

In wasn't such a good year for English results though. 61.7% of English entries scored a C or higher, down 1.9 percentage points from last summer.
