Council fails to plan for baby boom

Less than two years after Tory H&F council closed popular Peterborough primary school (and sold the site for a private French school), the council is desperately trying to cope with a surge in demand for places in, er, primary schools.

The much-heralded baby boom has led to local primary schools being asked to expand their intake at short notice.

Why the Tory council couldn't forecast the increased demand for primary school places is unbelievable.
