New measures will force schools to play part in terrorism crackdown

New measures are to be brought in which will force schools, councils and prisons in the region to play their part in the crackdown on terrorism.

The Home Secretary's announcement came ahead of a new bill to be introduced in parliament later this week, and at a time when the UK's terror threat level is at severe.

Police forces across the region are playing their part in raising awareness and enocuraging people to be vigilant, especially in crowded places and on public transport. Frazer Maude reports.

NHS workers from 11 trade unions - including nurses, midwives and paramedics, staged a four hour walkout this morning.

Liz Furness from the Royal College of Midwives explained the importance of the strike.
