MPs criticise overlapping 'Trojan Horse' inquiries

MPs have criticised Ofsted and the government over a "worrying lack of coordination" between five overlapping official inquiries into the so-called Trojan Horse affair.

It was alleged last year extremists had tried to take over several schools in Birmingham to advance radical interpretations of Islam.

A series of official investigations found the claims to be groundless.

The Education Select Committee said the separate inquiries led to a "sense of crisis and confusion".
