:00:44.:00:49.

scenes it is a different story. We found an airport worker who did not

want to be identified. I'd don't recommend friends or family flying

out of the airport, especially in the summer. This is a busy `irport.

20,000 aircraft use it each year, from gliders to military jets.

Horses are even delivered to nearby and Newmarket. The second

including the tower below us. It is clear the runway is wearing. Plans

:02:12.:02:18.

for a new one art on hold, `ccording to one whistle`blower. I saw a jet

that and airport will cut corners to cut costs.

:02:50.:03:00.

The CAA would not comment on our reports, but said they would

:03:01.:03:07.

consider any further allegations. In a statement, Cambridge Ahrport

:03:08.:03:10.

told us it has recruited three extra air traffic controllers and will

:03:11.:03:13.

refurbish the runway next ydar. It says, we utterly refute

:03:14.:03:16.

the implied allegations that safety Safety, above all,

is of paramount importance. An Islamic school in Luton has been

:03:20.:03:25.

criticised by Ofsted after books with fundamentalist

:03:26.:03:28.

views were found in the library Olive Tree Primary has been rated as

:03:29.:03:30.

inadequate for not doing enough to It comes on the day six schools

in Birmingham were put in special measures for failing to protect

:03:35.:03:39.

pupils from Islamic extremism. Inside the classroom that appears

:03:40.:03:51.

very little to set this apart from any other, but when Ofsted

:03:52.:03:56.

inspectors visited last month they raised a number of concerns. Today

:03:57.:04:01.

inspectors rated this school inadequate. They say there hs a lack

:04:02.:04:08.

of teaching about other relhgions and faiths, which the school

:04:09.:04:13.

project. We have had people from other faith and religions that have

:04:14.:04:23.

come into teaching. We reject what they are saying. Ofsted criticise

:04:24.:04:29.

the school library for not having other book on different relhgions.

:04:30.:04:38.

This is a staff library, not a child's library. These books are not

:04:39.:04:44.

made available to children. The report comes on the day Ofsted

:04:45.:04:50.

published its findings into allegations of extremism at a number

:04:51.:04:54.

of schools in Birmingham. Ofsted have told teachers at Olive Tree

:04:55.:05:00.

School that its curriculum needs to better prepare children for living

:05:01.:05:08.

in modern Britain. The school polls`macro governors say they

:05:09.:05:12.

reject the report today in hts entirety and are now seeking legal

advice to decide their next move. Earlier I spoke to Gavin Shtker

:05:17.:05:19.

the MP for Luton South. I asked him what he made of Oftsed's

report. Earlier I spoke to Gavin Shtker

report. It is both great concern. It is

:05:29.:05:44.

slightly different to the broader story in terms of the schools in

:05:45.:05:49.

Birmingham. Ofsted are not linking Olive Tree School with the schools

:05:50.:05:56.

in Birmingham, but what's information can you give to parents?

:05:57.:06:00.

It's up to parents where thdy want to send their children to school,

:06:01.:06:05.

but I am concerned that thex have released their report on thd same

:06:06.:06:11.

day as six Birmingham schools have been put into special measures. It

:06:12.:06:20.

is right that Ofsted did carry out this inspection. There are concerns

:06:21.:06:26.

about the way the school was targeted though. What impact will it

:06:27.:06:32.

have on the community in Luton? People will look at the report and

:06:33.:06:36.

see that we need to improve certain areas, but I don't think it is fair

:06:37.:06:43.

to jump to conclusions over allegations of extremism. Now it's

:06:44.:06:51.

-- over to jay now. Good evening, it was the warmest day

of the year. Warm for some, but thundery for others. This line of

really intense thunderstorms moved through. Large hail and gusty winds

:07:50.:07:55.

and rain as well. That moved away and now we look towards the south

:07:56.:07:58.

and you can see the rain moving northwards. So let's look at the

cloud which is heading our way and some of it does look really quite
