Al-Madinah school head 'left over threats'

22 October 2013 Last updated at 22:25 BST

The former head of a Derby free school rated as inadequate has said he left after threats were made against his family.

Andrew Cutts-McKay helped set up the Muslim ethos Al-Madinah, which opened in September 2012, but left the following June.

He said the anonymous threats to his children were the final straw after an ongoing row with governors over the school's funding.

Al-Madinah is facing a series of deadlines to improve after a damning Ofsted report.
