Manchester's education chiefs are to meet the government this week hoping for the green light to borrow £50m this year to save the city's dilapidated schools, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Education chair, Kath Fry, said many of the city's schools are Victorian and in desperate need of a facelift. Last year Manchester got £8.5m for its school replacement scheme despite a bid for £37m.

Wythenshawe MP Alf Morris plans to table a commons' motion demanding extra help for Manchester's schools in the next session, the paper reports.
