  3. U-turn over Sandown secondary education plans

    Plans to scrap secondary education at Sandown on the Isle of Wight have been "withdrawn", the council has said.

    The Bay CE School, Isle of Wight

    Isle of Wight Council said the authority's Conservative administration and new island MP Bob Seely had "succeeded in securing a commitment which ensures secondary education at Sandown will continue".

    It follows proposals to close troubled Sandown Bay Academy which was rated "inadequate" by Ofsted because of "ineffective leadership at all levels" in July.

    The council will now look at two options to either transfer leadership of the school to another academy sponsor or expand the age range of The Bay CE Primary School (pictured) to create a so-called "all through school" - with the latter being the council's preferred choice.

    A final decision is expected to be made by mid-October.

  4. 'I'm boiling inside. I don't know what to do'

    More on our story today about how a group of drivers delivering parcels for Amazon are claiming they are owed thousands of pounds in unpaid wages.

    The group of 24 drivers were told in July there was no more work for them.

    They say they were asked to hand in their van keys and told they would be paid the same evening.

    Amri Talel worked for AHC for three years. He said he was owed £4,000 in back pay and vehicle deposits.

    "I have no money and he [Mr Lyon] is enjoying himself. How can he sleep at night? I'm boiling inside. I don't know what to do."

    See our earlier posts for comments by Mr Lyon.

    Since the Inside Out West team started following their case and challenging AHC, Amri has been paid £1,600.

    BBC Inside Out West's report can be seen on BBC One in the West and South regions at 19:30 BST on Monday 4 September, and afterwards on the BBC iPlayer.

    South Western Railway has revealed its new look today.

    But it wasn't the best start with signalling problems causing rush hour delays for tens of thousands of passengers.

    It has been like that nearly every day for the last week, following a major upgrade of Waterloo station.

    The company is also facing a challenge from staff over the role of guards.

    Ikea Reading

    Hundreds of shoppers were trapped in a car park for more than three hours as they tried to leave an Ikea store on Sunday afternoon.

    Customers visiting the furniture shop in Calcot, Reading, took to social media to vent their frustration as the gridlock developed.

    Ikea has been approached for comment.

    Quote Message: The disruption followed the closure of one of the entrance lanes to the retail park due to road works. This resulted in a bottleneck at the roundabout which caused severe delays on Pincent Lane and in our carpark. On this busy “Back to School” weekend our team didn’t anticipate the consequence of the lane closure and responded as quickly as possible to try to rectify the situation. We would like to thank our customers for their patience. from Johanna Heuren IKEA Reading store manager
