A Coventry primary school which was once rated the most run-down school in England has been officially re-opened following significant refurbishment.

Pupils at Richard Lee Primary School previously had to put up with leaking ceilings, overflowing drains and cracks in the walls.

When Education Minister Nick Gibb visited the school in 2012, he described it as one of the worst schools he had ever seen.

The school has benefited from a £7m rebuild as part of the Government's school rebuilding programme.
