The UK's teenagers are lagging behind their contemporaries in countries like Singapore, South Korea and Japan - according to a major international study.

Wales has also fallen behind the rest of the UK significantly in reading, maths and science for the third time, according to the results of Pisa (Programme for International Student Assessment) tests run by the OECD think tank.
