May's concerns over Gove's handling of extremism in schools

Concerns about the Department for Education's handling of allegations of extremism in Birmingham schools have been raised by Theresa May.

The Home Secretary has asked Michael Gove about claims his department was aware of allegations in 2010 and Birmingham Council two years earlier.

But Education Secretary Mr Gove believes the Home Office is not doing enough on extremism, a report said.

Mr Gove and Mrs May have pledged that they are working together on the issue.
