    Liberal Democrat Education Minister David Laws has today launched a new scheme to recruit 100 top school leaders to turn around struggling schools.

    The Talented Leaders scheme aims to recruit the best headteachers in the country and place them in schools facing the toughest challenges.

    The programme aims to put these exceptional teachers in schools predominantly based in rural, coastal or deprived areas where it is difficult to attract strong school leaders.

    All 16-21 year olds in England will get a 66% discount on bus travel under plans unveiled by the Liberal Democrats today.

    The proposal, which forms part of the pre-manifesto launched today, would see all 16-21 year olds would be given a Young Person's Bus Pass. It would help young people with the cost of travel by offering a minimum two thirds discount on bus travel in England. Bus companies would then be able to add their own discounts on top of that.
