Education Secretary reveals first 'free schools'

Details of the first 16 'free schools' to be set up under the coalition government have been given by Education Secretary Michael Gove.

Half of the schools are in Conservative-run areas, seven are in Greater London and at least five are faith schools.

Mr Gove said the schools, which are state funded but outside of local authority control, had all been driven by demand from local people.
