Education Secretary Michael Gove is facing stiff opposition over plans to force a North London school to become an academy.

The Board of Governors at Downhills Primary School in Haringey opposed Academy Status - so were sacked.

Now, angry parents at Downhills have issued Michael Gove with an ultimatum.

They have given him two weeks to reinstate the orginal Board of Governors or they will seek a judicial review.
