* A school's governing body has refused to suspend its head and a teacher after a teenager drowned at an end-of-term barbecue the day after Bunmi went missing. The body of Yunus Moola, a 17-year-old student at Gloucester Central Technology College, was recovered by police divers from the Gullet Quarry at Catlemorton in Worcestershire. He had travelled to the picnic spot with 15 other business studies students and teacher Andy Barker. The school - which is grant-maintained - has refused to suspend Mr Barker and headmaster Paul Monelly pending an inquiry, despite a recommendation from Gloucestershire local education authority.
