A pupil expelled from school for letting down his teacher's car tyres in a April Fool's Day prank has been given leave for judicial review, The Times reports (p4).

A Staffordshire CC appeal committee took into account the boy's poor disciplinary record and backed the school's decision to expel him.

A council representative told the high court yesterday: 'The committee did not accept the hearsay evidence alone; they had evidence from the boy that he was involved'.

There have been three judicial reviews brought on behalf of expelled pupils in recent years, the paper reports.
