Theresa May has called for "concrete measures" to ensure girls in Commonwealth countries spend at least 12 years in education, BBC reports.

The prime minister pledged £212m, which Downing Street said would allow almost one million more girls to go to school.

Too often they were forced out by "discrimination, poverty, or simply the expectations of society", she said.

It comes as Commonwealth leaders gather in London for their summit, which is held every two years.
