West Midlands Has Worst GCSE Results In The Country
Birmingham MP says it's shocking that the West Midlands now has the worst GCSE results in the country.
The government figures for this summer's results show teenagers in the South East and in London are doing much better than those in the Midlands and the north.
Just under 60% in our region got A*-C in English and Maths compared to 66% in London.
Steve McCabe - the MP for Selly Oak - told Heart the focus needs to shift from creating new schools to funding more help:
27 year-old Chevaze McGregor pleaded guilty to killing the 2 year-old boy at an earlier hearing
The Chief Constable of West Midlands Police has warned forces across the UK are at breaking point because of funding cuts.
All of the more than 200 tower blocks in Birmingham are going to be fitted with sprinkler systems.
