Officials react to Leighton Andrews's GCSE regrade demand

The education sector and politicians have been reacting to a demand by Education Minister Leighton Andrews that GCSE English papers be regraded in Wales.

It follows a row about students being awarded lower grades than expected.

Leighton Andrews said a review had persuaded him hundreds of pupils had been the victims of an "injustice", a decision welcomed by teaching unions.

The secretary for the Association of Schools and Colleges Cymru Gareth Jones and the Conservative assembly leader Andrew RT Davies spoke to Huw Thomas on BBC Radio Wales' Good Morning Wales.
