Alastair McKee investigates why there's no money for urgent repairs at a dilapidated school in Weston-super-Mare. Governors at the school say there are holes in the floor, leaking ceilings and dead animals under the floorboards. Education experts say the conditions are completely unacceptable for children to learn in.

Plus, a tribute to the Gloucestershire teenager Rosie Kilburn who inspired thousands of people with an online diary charting her battle with cancer. Rosie passed away last month, but not before she raised thousands of pounds for cancer charities.

On the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, Professor Mark Horton tells the epic story of how the book was first translated into English.
