Is Charlotte Church running a school at home?

Singer Charlotte Church is facing an investigation amid claims she is running a school at her home without permission.

Vale of Glamorgan Council, which is yet to grant planning permission, said people had complained the building was already being used for teaching.

Ms Church denied the claims and insisted she was operating legally.

The council is yet to decide whether or not it will take formal action - but could in theory issue notices telling the singer to either stop or reverse any unauthorised work.

Ms Church plans to open a non-fee paying school for 20 local children aged nine to 12 which will be based at her home only for the first year.
