Parents have been caught lying to get their children into Hackney schools.

Ahead of the current school year, the Learning Trust reported three cases of parents or guardians trying to pull a fast one by giving them false addresses.

Last year there were two cases and in the last five years there has been seven, a Freedom Of Information request found.
