Plans for the expansion of four schools were given the go ahead tonight.

The members of Harrow Borough Council's planning committee unanimously approved the proposals for the schools, part of a council building scheme.

Construction work at Cannon Lane school, in Pinner, Shaftesbury School, in Harrow Weald, Whitchurch School, in Stanmore and Norbury School in Harrow will be carried out in the coming year.

The plans were part of the second phase of school expansion to help deal with the increasing demand for places in the coming years.
