Lambeth school given £17m 'without looking at long-term viability'

The National Audit Office has found that the Durand Academy in Stockwell was given £17 million to create England's first free boarding school by ministers without them looking into its long-term viability.

Under the plan, pupils would be bussed from Lambeth, to board for four nights a week at the new school in West Sussex. Credit: ITN
