Over four hundred students received their GSCE results this morning, with an overall pass rate of 70%. This is a 4% increase on last year, with some particularly impressive English Literature results at Westside, where the number of students achieving A and A* grades more than doubled from the previous year. Grades for Maths remain consistently high and Spanish results, which have fallen over the last few years, increased overall this year. The results are the culmination of a huge amount of hard work and effort from both students and teachers, and Katy Docker was there this morning as the students opened their results.

There was palpable tension in the minutes that followed, but eventually peace was restored. Opposition Leader, Daniel Feetham also struck a conciliatory note, saying the cut and thrust of parliamentary politics was important in a democracy, and as far as the Government and the Opposition were concerned it was ‘business as usual.’
The United Kingdom's decision this week to formally trigger the two year European Union exit process was keenly felt in Gibraltar.

As CGTN's Dan Williams reports, that would have serious economic consequences for both sides of the border.
