Newbury's Park House School forced to cancel Iraq trip

Pupils and staff from a school in Berkshire have cancelled a trip to Iraq after insurgents seized two of the country's main cities.

Park House School in Newbury has been working with teachers from many of the areas now threatened by the Sunni militants.

Head girl Heather Barr, who was set to make the journey, said knowing pupils affected there made the crisis feel "more personal".
