Trojan Horse: 25 schools probed over alleged Islamic takeover plot

An investigation into an alleged Islamic takeover plot of Birmingham schools has widened, with 25 schools now under the spotlight.

Birmingham City Council said it had received more than 200 reports in relation to its inquiry.

It said it had set pupils two pieces of work as part of the probe.

Anonymous claims that hard-line Muslims were trying to take over the running of some city schools were made in a letter sent to local authorities last year.

Councillor Sir Albert Bore, Leader of Birmingham City Council said the Council was frustrated because it did "not have the relationship with the academies that we have with the community schools".
