Six things we learned about embattled academy trusts

Two academy trusts that have been engulfed in controversy have been the focus of a public spending watchdog today.

Academy officials who are now responsible for Durand and Bright Tribe faced questions from MPs on the Public Accounts Committee.

Bright Tribe is giving up all of its schools after being embroiled in financial controversy and following opposition from parents at one of its high-profile schools.

The government is said to be trying to claw back up to £321,775 from Bright Tribe because it does not have proof that funding was spent on its intended purpose.
