Sir Mike Tomlinson appointed Birmingham education commissioner

The new education commissioner for Birmingham - appointed after investigations into the so-called "Trojan Horse" letter - has been unveiled.

Sir Mike Tomlinson, a former chief inspector of schools, will assume the post for 12 months.

He will oversee schools in the city after the council was criticised for its slow response to allegations in the anonymous letter.

BBC Midlands Today's Giles Latcham spoke to Perry Barr MP Khalid Mahmood about the appointment.
