After the Chief Inspector of Ofsted expressed concerns about 'unseen' children being let down by the education system in deprived coastal towns and rural areas, Anna Hill asks if the poorest pupils are getting a raw deal. She speaks to North Yorkshire MP, Anne McIntosh about the £100,000 that's being targeted at disadvantaged children in the countryside - and discusses whether it's enough to make a difference.

It's well-known that cattle and badgers carry bovine TB, but many other warm-blooded animals are also susceptible to the disease including pigs, sheep, goats, cats and dogs. And if any of those test positive, the response is the same as with cattle. The animal has to be put down.

In Cornwall, a seal pup has tested positive for bovine tb - it's thought to be the first case in the world. Anna Hill asks the Government's Chief Veterinary Officer Nigel Gibbens if it's just a one-off case or whether we should worried.
