Education Secretary Michael Gove has admitted to problems with some free schools but said the failures were now being dealt with.

He said things had "certainly gone wrong" at the troubled Al-Madinah free school in Derby, which he called a "specific" and "worrying" case.

Mr Gove also told Andrew Marr he was now operating a "tighter inspection regime" for both free schools and local authority schools, and the test would be the "speed with which you deal with failure".
