Primary school allocations revealed to parents

Parents across England have learned which primary schools their children will attend, amid a growing places squeeze in parts of the country.

Results vary greatly, with up to one in six missing out on their first choice of school in some areas, while almost all got their number one preference in others.

Education correspondent Gillian Hargreaves reports.
