Calls for management overhaul at Derby free school

Community leaders have called for a complete overhaul of management at the Al-Madinah free school in Derby.

A public meeting was held last night for parents to voice their concerns about the school following a series of critical reports, including one from Ofsted labelling it "dysfunctional".

Zafer Iqbal, from the Derby Community Education Forum, told ITV News Central that replacing the entire management team and re-branding the school might be the only solution.
