Education Secretary Michael Gove

The Government’s Education Minister has called off a planned visit to Blackpool due to the death of a teacher at a school in Leeds.

MP Michael Gove was due to visit the resort today to visit St Mary’s Catholic College and host a reception with fellow Conservative Paul Maynard, MP for Blackpool North and Cleveleys. 
The Minister has chosen to call off the visit to remain in Westminster in order to offer support to the Department for Education following the stabbing of Ann Maguire at Corpus Christi Catholic College on Monday.
