Suspected illegal school being run in Tower Hamlets

An education centre in Tower Hamlets raided by police last week may have been operating as an illegal school, according to local education officials.

The director of Siddeeq Academy was arrested by anti-terrorist officers after the council raised concerns that dozens of children were potentially being exposed to an ''unsuitable curriculum''.

There has been no response from the school.

BBC London education reporter Marc Ashdown talks to Robert McCullough from Tower Hamlets Council.
