Funding boost for children's play
  Children in Amber Valley are to benefit from almost 
  250,000 of investment in play areas.  Improvements 
  are planned for Alfreton Park, Heanor Memorial Park 
  and Crays Hill Recreation Ground.

Cot death warning for teen mums 
  The children of young mothers are at much higher risk 
  of cot death because their mum misses out on 
  prevention advice, a charity has warned.  Sudden infant 
  death is five times more common in the babies of 
  teenage mothers compared with older mothers. 

Mums-to-be confused over advice 
  There is widespread confusion among mums-to-be about 
  pregnancy health, largely compounded by conflicting 
  information, a survey reveals.

Britain's primary school class sizes still large
  Britain's primary schools have bigger class sizes 
  than almost every other developed country, despite 
  millions of pounds being spent on keeping pupil 
  numbers down.
